The Weight from Area, Depth and Density calculator computes the mass / weight of a volume based on the area and depth or height and the density.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Weight (M): The calculator returns the weight in metric tons (t). However, this can be automatically converted to other weight and mass units (e.g. short tons, pounds, kilgrams) via the pulldown menu.
The formula for volume from area and depth assumes a flat surface (A) and the depth or height measured perpendicular to the surface (h). The formula for the volume based on area and height is:
M = A • h ⋅ mD

Mean Density Lookup Function 
Mean density is scientifically volume divided by mass. There are various unit for density adopted by cultures and industries. Common units for density included the following:
If you want to identify a material by its density, use the Density Within Range tool.
Weight is technically the downward force that a mass exerts based on the force of gravity and the mass of the object. On the surface of the Earth, mass and weight are often interchanged. In some places, objects are sold by the gram (mass), and in other locations, the same objects are sold by the ounce (weight).
The Weight Calculators use the dimensions of an object and its shape to compute the objects volume. They then apply a density associated with a material to estimate the objects weight.
Volume is a three dimensional measurement of the amount of space taken up by an object. Volume units are cubic measurements for solid objects such as cubic inches and cubic meters. Fluids have separate volume units such as liters, fluid ounces, cups, gallons, and barrel.
The volume of an object can measured by the liquid it displaces or be calculated by measuring its dimensions and applying those dimensions to a formula describing its shape. Many such calculations are available in the following list of calculators.
In many cases, the calculators are for a column with a geometric shaped base and vertical sides. One basic formula for volume is area times a Height when the volume has vertical sides.
