The Price per Weight or Mass calculator computes the price to buy or sell a certain weight (A) of a product at a unit price (UP) per unit weight (UW).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units (e.g. pounds or kilograms, dollars or Euros) and enter the following:
Price per Weight or Mass (TP): The calculator returns price to associated to buy or sell A at UP per B. The price will be returned in United States Dollars (USD). However, this can be automatically converted into numerous other currencies (see list below) via the pull-down menu next to the answer. The calculator also returns the number of units (nU) needed to achieve the weight/mass requirement (Weight of Product).
If you know how much a certain weight or mass is valued, you can use that information to compute the value of a different amount of product. For simple example, a 3 pounds (B) of ground beef may cost $6.30 (UP). In that case, how much would 15 pounds (A) cost?
`TP = A * "UP"/"UW"`
Note: Mass and weight are technically different. Mass is the amount of matter and weight is the force of that mass affected by gravity. HOWEVER, since we humans almost always live on the surface of the Earth, there is an easy conversion between weight and mass, and we can therefore make easy and fairly accurate conversions between a mass (e.g. kilograms) and a weight (e.g. pounds).
