## How to use this calculator?

- Specify whether you want to use the metric or imperial system.
- Enter the length, width, and depth of the surface.
- If needed, change the default density of asphalt.
- 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.
