## How do you calculate the weight of a concrete block?

Instructions

- Decide the nominal weight for standing cubic (0.02 m3) of your concrete.
- Measure the length of the slab.
- Measure the width of the slab.
- Calculate the depth of your slab.
- Multiply your measurements in steps 2, 3 and 4 to find your cubic volume: 10 ft.

### How do you calculate the weight of a block?

Multiply the volume by the density to calculate the brick weight. In the example, the weight is 0.000768 cubic meters x 1,922 kilograms/cubic meter = 1.476 kilograms. Multiply the weight in kilograms by 2.204 to convert it to pounds. In the example, the brick weight is 2.204 x 1.476 = 3.253 pounds.
