Asphalt Calculator

Calculate the amount of asphalt you need and how much it will cost based on the chosen unit price.

Required Asphalt: 0 ft³ (0 yd³)
Asphalt Weight: 0 tons (0 lbs)

How to use this calculator?

  1. Specify whether you want to use the metric or imperial system.
  2. Enter the length, width, and depth of the surface.
  3. If needed, change the default density of asphalt.
  4. If you want the calculator to also estimate the total price, enter the price per ton.

How to calculate how much asphalt do you need?

To calculate the required asphalt, Multiply the length by the width by the depth in the same units.
Asphalt Required = length * width * depth
Example: Calculate the amount of asphalt needed for a surface with a length of 20 ft, width of 15 ft, and depth of 4 in.

Asphalt Required = 20 ft * 15 ft * (4 / 12) ft // We divide 4 by 12 because 1 inch is equal to 1/12 feet.

Asphalt Required = 300 ft * (4 / 12) ft

Asphalt Required = 100 ft³

To calculate the weight, multiply the asphalt required by the density.

For example:

100 ft³ * 145 lb/ft³ = 14500 lbs

What is the Asphalt Density?

The density of asphalt refers to its mass per unit volume, typically measured in pounds per cubic feet (lb/ft³) or kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m³).

The standard density of asphalt usually ranges from 138 lb/ft³ to 150 lb/ft³ (2,200 to 2,400 kg/m3³).

In this calculator, you can specify your custom density to make the results adjusted to your needs.
