The Mass or Weight of a Solid Cuboid formula provides the weight BoxWeight-illustration.png
Common Mean Densities (mD)
1,000 kg/m3 - Pure Water
1,022 kg/m3 - Sea water
1,037 kg/m3 - Milk
860 kg/m3 - Olive Oil
885 kg/m3 - Diesel Fuel
870 - 920 kg/m3 - Crude Oil
890 kg/m3 - Fuel Oil
789 kg/m3 - Ethanol
737 kg/m3 - Gasoline (petrol)
1,442 kg/m3 - Cement Slurry
or mass of a cuboid (a.k.a. box, right parallelepiped ) of length (l), height (h) and depth (d) and a mean density (mD).

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:

  • (l) This is the length
  • (h) This is the height
  • (d) This is the depth
  • (mD) This is the mean density.

Cuboid Mass (M):  The calculator returns the mass in kilograms.  However this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The Math / Science

The Mass or Weight of a cuboid or rectangular container formula computes the volume of rectangular geometric shape based on the input parameters.  With the volume of the cuboid, this formula then executes the simple equation below to compute the approximate mass of the object.

`mass = mu_(density) * volume`

The mean density (`mu_(density)`) of many common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by clicking HERE(e.g. the `mu_(density) (water)` is 1000.0 kg/m³).
