The Mass of a Bottle calculator computes the mass based on the dimensions of the bottle and the mean density of the material.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose the length units you wish (e.g. centimeters or inches) and enter the following:
Mass of the Bottle (M): The calculator returns the mass in grams. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
The formula for the mass of a bottle shaped object is thetimes the density of the material. Assuming normal gravity, this also provides the weight. Geometrically, a bottle shaped object is the combination of right circular cone with a frustum defined by base radius (a) and top radius (b) and height (h2) in between and a cylinder of radius (b) and height (h1). The volume is calculated and then multiplied by a mean density (mD) to provide the mass of the shape. See diagram. KEY WORDS: container
