Enter the wood radius (ft), the wood length (ft), and the mass of the wood (lbs) into the Wood Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Wood Density.

## Wood Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Wood Density.

Dwood = m / (pi*wr^2*wl)

• Where Dwood is the Wood Density (lbs/ft^3)
• wr is the wood radius (ft)
• wl is the wood length (ft)
• m is the mass of the wood (lbs)

## How to Calculate Wood Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Wood Density.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the wood radius (ft).
1. The wood radius (ft) is given as 3.
2. Next, determine the wood length (ft).
1. The wood length (ft) is calculated as: 20.
3. Next, determine the mass of the wood (lbs).
1. The mass of the wood (lbs) is found to be: 1000.
4. Finally, calculate the Wood Density using the formula above:

Dwood = m / (pi*wr^2*wl)

Inserting the values from above yields:

Dwood = 1000 / (pi*3^2*20) = 1.7683 (lbs/ft^3)
