`"Weight"_"volume" = "V" * "mD" `

Enter a value for all fields

The **Weight of a Volume** calculator computes the weight or mass of a volume (V) of material based on its mean density (mD)

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**V**) This is the volume of the material (e.g. 2.2 cubic yards of sand) - (
**mD**) This is the mean density of the material. (See below)

This formula accepts the volume in a large set of solid and liquid units. With the volume, this formula then executes the simple equation below to compute the approximate mass of the object.

m = mD * v

where:

- m is the mass, which can be converted to weight.
- mD is the mean density of the material
- v is the volume of material.

The mean density (average density) of many materials have been measured and can be used in formulas like this. The mean density (mD) of hundreds common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by **CLICKING HERE**.
