## Volumetric Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Volumetric Weight.

**VW = PL * PW * PH / 138.345**

Variables:

- VW is the Volumetric Weight (lbs)
- PL is the parcel length (in)
- PW is the parcel width (in)
- PH is the parcel height (in)

## How to Calculate Volumetric Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Volumetric Weight.

- First, determine the parcel length (in).
- Next, determine the parcel width (in).
- Next, determine the parcel height (in).
- Next, gather the formula from above = VW = PL * PW * PH / 138.345.
- Finally, calculate the Volumetric Weight.
- 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.

parcel length (in) = 10

parcel width (in) = 5

parcel height (in) = 6VW = PL * PW * PH / 138.345 =** ** ?
