In this volumetric weight calculator, the calculation can be performed in two units; one in centimeters and another one in inches. Select the option from the unit's drop down and enter the values of length, width and height of the shipment; and click on the calculate button provides the volumetric weight in the preferred unit.

The following mathematical formula is used in this this calculator to find the dimensional weight of a consignment for the given input value of length l, width w & height h.

The formula to calculate the consignment dimensional weight based on centi-meters

The formula to calculate the consignment volumetric weight based on inches

The below solved example problem may be useful to understand how the values are being used in the mathematical formulas to find the occupied volume or dimensional weight of a consigment.

**Example Problem 1:**

Find the volumetric weight of a consignment having the length l = 25 cm width w = 12 cm & height h = 7 cm?

**Solution :**

The given values

length l = 25 cm

width w = 12 cm

height h = 7 cm

**Step by step calculation**

formula to find dimensional weight = l b h/5000

= (length x width x height)/5000

substitute the values

= 25 x 12 x 7/5000

= **0.42 kg**

**Example Problem 2:**

Find the volumetric weight of a consignment having the length l = 25 in width w = 12 in & height h = 7 in?

**Solution :**

The given values

length l = 25 in

width w = 12 in

height h = 7 in

**Step by step calculation**

formula to find dimensional weight = l b h/305

= (length x width x height)/305

substitute the values

= 25 x 12 x 7/305

= **6.88 kg**
