The **Truck Load Weight for a Rectangular Container** calculator computes weight * Rectangular Container *}} of a load in a rectangular truck container. The container's volume is defined by the dimensions (length, width, height) of the container. The weight is calculated by multiplying the volume by a mean density.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**l**) The container length - (
**w**) The container width (w) - (
**h**) The container height (h). For the total potential weight of a load, use the full height of the container. For a specific load, enter the depth of the load. - (
**mD**) The mean density (mD) of the contents. If you do not know the mean density (weight per cubic volume), click CLICK HERE for a quick look-up of over 500 common materials and substances. For example, the mean density of bituminous coal is 793 kg/m^{3}.*CONTAINER SHAPES**Conic Cylinder**Capsule Shaped**Box Container**Spherical Tank*

**Rectangular Container Load Weight (w):** The calculator returns the load weight in pounds. However this can be automatically converted to other mass or weight units via the pull-down menu.

For similar calculations with other shaped containers, click on the following:

- Volume of a Conic Cylinder
- Load Weight of a Conic Cylinder
- Volume of a Capsule (Spherocylinder)
- Load Weight of a Capsule (Spherocylinder)
- Total or Partial Volume of a Box (Rectangular). For the partial volume, simply use the depth of substance in the container instead of the total depth of the container.
- Total or Partial Load Weight of a Box (Rectangular). For the weight of a partial load, simply use the depth of substance in the container instead of the total depth of the container.
- Volume of a Spherical Container
- Total or Partial Load Weight of a Spherical Container. For the total load weight, simply indicated the same value for the measure depth (D) of the substance to equal twice the radius (R) of the container. (See diagram)
