Enter the total object volume (ft^3) and the total object area (ft^2) into the Thickness Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Thickness. 

Thickness Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Thickness.

T = V / A


  • T is the Thickness (ft)
  • V is the total object volume (ft^3) 
  • A is the total object area (ft^2) 

How to Calculate Thickness?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Thickness.

  1. First, determine the total object volume (ft^3). 
  2. Next, determine the total object area (ft^2). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = T = V / A .
  4. Finally, calculate the Thickness.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total object volume (ft^3) = 30

total object area (ft^2) = 15

T = V / A = ?
