The Concrete Weight formula computes the weight of a volume (V) of concrete.

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your preferred units and enter the following:

  • (V) Enter the volume of concrete

Weight/Mass: The calculator returns weight of the concrete in tons_us (aka short tons).  However, this can be automatically converted to other mass and weight units (e.g. pounds, kilograms or metric tons)  via the pull-down menu.

General Information

Note; Different units of volume are available (e.g. cubic meters, cubic yards)  The weight is computed based on the following simple weight (mass) formula:

    Weight = Volume * meanDensity

The meanDensity of concrete is   1.9575 ton_us/yd³.
