This **mass calculator** can estimate the mass of a body by taking account of its volume and density, while the units for the two values can be chosen as desired. You can read more about the mass and density formula below the tool.

The algorithm behind this *mass calculator* uses this density formula:

ρ = m / V

Where:

ρ = density

m = mass

V = volume

From the above equation rise this mass formula:

m = ρ * V

Usually the mass is expressed in kilograms (kg) and grams (g) in Metric units and pounds (lbs) in English units, but in order to have a quick view on how much such a unit represents this mass calculator displays as well the mass in all the units listed here by using the following conversion rates:

kilogram (kg) |
Default unit |

metric ton (t) |
1000 |

gram (g) |
0.001 |

milligram (mg) |
1.00E-06 |

microgram (Mcg) |
1.00E-09 |

Long ton (L_t) |
1016.05 |

Short ton (S_t) |
907.185 |

stone (st) |
6.35029 |

ounce (oz) |
0.0283495 |

pound (lb) |
0.453592 |

## Example of a calculation

Let’s discover the mass of a platform of hardened concrete with a density of 150 lb./ft^{3 }and a volume of 5 cubic meter (m^{3}):

Answer:

Mass = 2,402.76951 kilogram

OR

2.40276951 metric ton

2,000002 gram

2,402,769,510 milligram

2,402,769,510,000 microgram

2.3648297794 Long ton

2.6485728309 Short ton

89 stone

84,42 ounce

5,9 pound
