## Weight per Square Foot Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Weight per Square Foot.

WSF = W / A

Variables:

- WSF is the Weight per Square Foot (lbs/ft^2)
- W is the total weight (lbs)
- A is the total area (ft^2)

To calculate weight per square foot, divide the total weight by the total area.

## How to Calculate Weight per Square Foot?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Weight per Square Foot.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total weight (lbs).
- The total weight (lbs) is given as:: 300.

- Next, determine the total area (ft^2).
- The total area (ft^2) is provided as: 10.

- Finally, calculate the Weight per Square Foot using the equation above:

WSF = W / A

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

WSF = 300 / 10 = 30.00 (lbs/ft^2)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total weight (lbs) = 200

total area (ft^2) = 20
