The Price per Weight or Mass calculator computes the price to buy or sell a certain weight or mass(A) of a product at a unit price (UP) per unit weight or mass(B).

INSTRUCTIONS:  Choose your weight or mass units (e.g. pounds or kilograms) and the currency units and enter the following:

  • (A) The weight or mass of product to be bought or sold.  For example, you wish to buy 15 pounds of cheese.
  • (UP) The unit price for the unit weight or mass (B).  For example $49.95 (USD) for three pounds.
  • (B) The unit weight or mass that costs the unit price (UP).   For example, three pounds in the cheese example above.

The Price per Weight or Mass calculator will make the appropriate unit conversions and compute the price to buy 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.

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).
