Enter the total weight (N) and the total density (kg/m^3) into the Volume From Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Volume From Weight. 

Volume From Weight Formula

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

V = W/9.81 / D

  • Where V is the Volume From Weight (m^3)
  • W is the total weight (N) 
  • D is the total density (kg/m^3) 

How to Calculate Volume From Weight?

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

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total weight (N). 
    1. The total weight (N) is given as: 50.
  2. Next, determine the total density (kg/m^3). 
    1. The total density (kg/m^3) is provided as: 3.5.
  3. Finally, calculate the Volume From Weight using the equation above: 

V = W/9.81 / D

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

V =50/9.81 / 3.5 = 1.456 (m^3)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total weight (N) = 800

total density (kg/m^3) = 2.7

Entering these values and solving gives:

V = 800/9.81 / 2.7 = 30.203 (m^3)
