# Granite Weight Calculator

How to calculate the weight of granite for your next project? Enter key measurements into the **Granite Weight Calculator** calculator, you can easily find out the weight of your granite slab.

### What is Granite Weight?

Granite weight means how heavy a piece of granite is. It depends on its size and thick stuff inside. Granite weight is important for build jobs, moving, and putting it in place. Bigger or thicker granite holds more heavy stuff inside. Knowing the weight helps pick the right way to move it and put it where it fits best.

### How to Use the Calculator

To use the Granite Weight Calculator, follow these steps:

**Granite Length (ft)**: Input the length of the granite slab. For example, enter`10`

feet.**Granite Width (ft)**: Input the width of the granite slab. For instance, enter`5`

feet.**Granite Thickness (in)**: Input the thickness of the granite slab. For example, enter`2`

inches.**Granite Weight (lb)**: If you already know the weight, you can input it here. Otherwise, leave it blank to calculate.

The calculator will then determine the missing value based on the provided inputs.

### Formula

The formula to calculate the weight of a granite slab is:

$\text{GRN}=(\text{GL}\times \text{GW}\times \text{GT})\mathrm{/}12\times 175$

**Variables**

Variable | Description |
---|---|

GRN | Granite Weight (lb) |

GL | Granite Length (ft) |

GW | Granite Width (ft) |

GT | Granite Thickness (in) |

## How To Calculate Granite Weight

#### Example 1

**Granite Length**: 8 feet**Granite Width**: 4 feet**Granite Thickness**: 2 inches

To calculate the **Granite Weight**:

Multiply the length by the width:

$8\times 4=32$ square feet

Multiply this by the thickness:

$32\times 2=64$cubic feet-inches

Divide by 12 to convert inches to feet:

$64\mathrm{/}12\approx 5.33$ cubic feet

Multiply by the density:

$5.33\times 175\approx 933.25$ pounds

So, the granite weight is approximately **933.25 pounds**.

#### Example 2

**Granite Length**: 6 feet**Granite Width**: 3 feet**Granite Thickness**: 1.5 inches

To calculate the **Granite Weight**:

Multiply the length by the width:

$6\times 3=18$square feet

Multiply this by the thickness:

$18\times 1.5=27$cubic feet-inches

Divide by 12 to convert inches to feet:

$27\mathrm{/}12\approx 2.25$cubic feet

Multiply by the density:

$2.25\times 175\approx 393.75$pounds

So, the granite weight is approximately **393.75 pounds**.
