Weight of concrete per cubic foot – Step by step Calculation

Hello guys, In this article, you will learn how to calculate the weight of concrete in a cubic foot. We do not measure the dimension of all structures like column, beam, slab, etc in meters. Sometimes we have to measure in the foot. So, we have to calculate the weight of concrete which has volume in a foot cube.

So, lets start how to calculate Step by Step.

Let us take an example of one cubic foot concrete. Latter if have 5 cubic foot or 10 cubic foot then you could calculate in the same process.

Weight of concrete per cubic foot - Step by step Calculation

Numerical Calculation for Weight of concrete per cubic foot

Step-1 (Convert Foot into Meter)

We have weight of concrete,

= Volume * Density

But, we have density of concrete = 2400 kg/m3

(Keep in mind that density of PCC (Where Steel rod has not used in concrete) is 2400 kg/m3 but density of RCC (Where Steel rod has used in concrete) is 2400 kg/m3 )

And, Volume of concrete,

= 1 feet * 1 Feet * 1 Feet

= 0.3048 m * 0.3048 m * 0.3048 m

Since, we have 1 foot = 0.3048 m. We have to convert all the foot units into meter.

= 0.0283 m3

Therefore,

Step-2 (Apply Formula Taking Density 2400 kg/m3

Weight of Concrete Cube will be,

= Volume * Density

= 0.0283 * 2400

= 67.9604 Kg.
