Enter the total mass (kg) and the total volume (m^3) into the Weight Per Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Weight Per Volume.

## Weight Per Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Weight Per Volume.

WPV = m * 9.81 / V

• Where WPV is the Weight Per Volume (N/m^3)
• m is the total mass (kg)
• V is the total volume (m^3)

## How to Calculate Weight Per Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Weight Per Volume.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total mass (kg).
1. The total mass (kg) is given as: 30.
2. Next, determine the total volume (m^3).
1. The total volume (m^3) is provided as: 15.
3. Finally, calculate the Weight Per Volume using the equation above:

WPV = m * 9.81 / V

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

WPV = 30 * 9.81 / 15 = 19.62 (N/m^3)

Example Problem #2:

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total mass (kg) = 6

total volume (m^3) = 2

Entering these values and solving gives:

WPV = 6* 9.81 / 2 = 29.43 (N/m^3)
