The Weight of Water calculator computes the weight (mass) of a volume (V) of water.

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose the preferred units and enter the flowing;

  • (V) This is the volume of water

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

The Math / Science

The Density of Water is 1,000 kilograms per cubic meters. The formula for mass is:

             M = D • V

where:

  • M is the mass
  • D is the density (mean density)
  • V is the volume.

The mean density (mD, μD or ρ) of many common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by clicking HERE (e.g. the μD(water) is 1,000 kg/m3).
