## Weight Per Gallon Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Weight Per Gallon.

**WPG = W / G**

Variables:

- WPG is the Weight Per Gallon (lbs/gallon)
- W is the total weight of the object or substance (lbs)
- G is the total volume (gallons)

## How to Calculate Weight Per Gallon?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Weight Per Gallon.

- First, determine the total weight of the object or substance (lbs).
- Next, determine the total volume (gallons).
- Next, gather the formula from above = WPG = W / G.
- Finally, calculate the Weight Per Gallon.
- 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 weight of the object or substance (lbs) = 100

total volume (gallons) = 50

WPG = W / G** **= ?
