The Mass of Volume of Substance equation provides the mass (and weight on the surface of the Earth) of common substances based on their mean density and volume.  In general, the mass of an object can be computed as volume times mean density.

                   ` Mass = mu_"density" * Volume`

Instructions

  1. Enter the volume of the substance.  The default units are in meters cubed.  However, vCalc provides automatic conversions from many volume units, both English and Metric (SI).
  2. Select the substance from the pull-down list.  vCalc provides the mean density of hundreds of common substances (see below).
  3. vCalc will return the mass of the specified volume of the specified substance.

This answers questions like

  • How much does ten gallons of wet snow weigh?
  • How much does a bushel of wheat weight?
  • How much does twenty litres of olive oil weight?
  • How much does 2.5 cubic yards of slag weight?
  • ... and many, many more.

Mean Density

The mean densities (`mu_"density"`) provided including metals, woods, soils, stones and aggregates, farm products, elements, mining substances, oils, chemicals and construction materials.
