# How much does a square foot of snow weigh?

# How much does a cubic foot of water weigh?

Answer #1: This question is easier to solve by first converting the volume tocubic centimetres (millilitres), because 1 millilitre of waterweighs 1 gram and 1 litre weighs 1 kilogram. 1 ft is 30.48 cm. 1 ft * 1 ft * 1 ft = 30.48 cm * 30.48 cm * 30.48 cm = 28,316.8466 cm 3 Now, we divide that b…y 1000 to convert that to litres, and knowingthat 1 L weighs 1 kg of water, we get the weight. = 28.317 kg If you want the answer in lbs, then multiply by the number of lbsin 1 kg. 28.317 kg * 2.205 lbs/kg = 62.43 lbs ======== Answer #2: I have a method which I claim is even easier: Look it up andmemorize it. With that method, I have been using 62.4 pounds for many years. It has worked for me, but I confess that I am only an engineer. ( Full Answer )

# How much does a cubic foot of air weigh?

According to the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, thedensity of dry air at 20 degrees C at 760 mm of mercury (oneatmosphere of pressure) is 1.204 milligrams per cubiccentimeter. 1 cubic foot = 28,316.8467 cubic centimeters. So, dry air weighs 34,093.48 mg per cu.ft. Which is about 1.2 ounces p…er cu.ft. Observation: I think the above is what you would find if you weigh the air in avacuum (the air is in a container of known weight, and thecontainer is being weighed in a vacuum). The above was probablydetermined with knowledge of physics and mathematics, but the ideais the same. Practically speaking on earth's surface, at 20 degreesC and one atmosphere, the air would weigh nothing at all; perhapsmore accurately the air 'weighs' its own displacement in the airitself. It would be perfectly buoyant. Think about weighing 1 cubicfoot of lake water, with the water completely submerged under thesurface of the lake... quite a different result from weighing it ondry land. Unless you are studying buoyancy, it might be more usefulto use things like atmospheric pressure, or the mass of a sample ofgas and its temperature and pressure within the sample, dependingon your need. The question demonstrates the importance of knowingthe standard conditions (stp) used in research. There is nouniversally established set of standard conditions, so attention isabsolutely necessary. See discussion. Follow-up to observation: If you had a container with a volume of one cubic foot andevacuated it, it would weigh less than if it were full of air atstandard temperature and pressure. You would not need to weigh itin a vacuum, unless its weight in vacuum is what you want. By comparing the weights of the evacuated and the full container,you can determine the weight of the air, essentially, in a vacuum.The weight of the air "in air" remains zero. This seems odd,because we are weighing the container "in air", and the weight goesup when we add the air. I think this does not mean that the airweighs something as it hangs out in the air. [see discussion] I think what is happening is that the observed weight of theperfectly evacuated container at one atmosphere will beless than the weight of the container itself , becauseto find the container's weight we would need to subtract the weightof the volume of air the whole container is displacing. So puttingmass into the container serves the purpose of bringing us closer tothe weight of the container, and doesn't demonstrate that the airhas weight while suspended in itself. [see discussion] Any chemist will tell you that the molar volume is 22.4 liters at STP - Standard Temperatureand Pressure (1 atmosphere, 32 F). The mass of a mole is equal tothe molecular weight of the molecule it's made of, multiplied by 1gram. Air doesn't have a standard definition as to composition, but it'sgenerally about 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% other stuff. Sincenitrogen has a molecular weight of about 28 and oxygen has amolecular weight of about 32, the molecular weight of air is about28.8 and a mole has a mass of 28.8 grams. Dividing 28.8 grams into 22.400 liters, you get 1.286 grams perliter, which isn't far from the 1.2 grams per liter quoted above, which is not at STP. Arguing that air "weighs nothing"in ordinary conditions ignores the fact that air may be usedto displace other fluids, and ignores the fact that air's weightgives air momentum. Or consider the lift of a hot air balloon. If the temperature ofthe air in the balloon is 200F and you are ballooning on a wintermorning when it's 40 out, how much lift does the balloon produce.You need to use absolute temperatures so adjusting to Rankin scale,the air inside the balloon only weighs 499/659 as much as the airoutside the balloon. That's about 75% as much - and so the lift ofthat balloon is about 25% of the weight of the air that wouldnormally be in that balloon. Hmmm. A back-of-the-envelopecalculation reveals that 25% of nothing is still nothing - and yethot air balloons DO rise. One might as well assert that you only weigh 85 pounds, becauseyou're only 85 pounds over the Metropolitan Insurance tables, butyou'll still have to buy your clothes in the Big & Tall store.

# How much does one square foot of ice weigh?

Square Foot of Ice \n.
\nThere is no answer to this question; it depends on a variety of issues, the biggest of which is the thickness of the ice. One square foot of one inch thick ice weighs significantly less than one square foot of one foot thick ice.\n.
\nThe other factor involved is the den…sity of the ice. The biggest factor here is the amount of air trapped in the ice. Temperature and air pressure can also affect ice density.\n.
\nThe Dr. Math Forum addressed this issue in one of their postings. See the Web Links to the right for a link to their discussion. ( Full Answer )

# How much does snow weigh?

That depends .
It depends on how much you have!!\n.
\nOne shovelful of snow, for example, weighs less than the amount of snow on your driveway.\n.
\nI suspect what you are really asking is not how much snow weighs but how much it weighs per cubit foot or cubic yard . Weight per unit volume …is called density .\n.
\nBut even that is tricky with respect to snow. The density of snow varies greatly. Lightly packed powder weighs very little per cubic foot, whereas slushy, wet snow can weigh over 62 pounds per cubic foot -- about the density of water. ( Full Answer )

# How much does a cubic foot of snow weigh?

Ken Hellevang, from the University of North Dakota says: "The weight of snow varies greatly. Light fluffy snow may onlyweigh about seven pounds per cubic foot. More average snow mayweigh 15 pounds per cubic foot and drifted compacted snow may weigh20 pounds or more..." Let's figure this out... …There are 7.48 gallons per cubic foot of water - that's about 62.4pounds. For Wet Snow Let's say wet snow would be equivalent to 1" of rain or 5" of snow,you would get a resulting 62.4/5 = 12.5 pounds. For Light, Fluffy Snow Let's say fluffy snow would be equivalent to 2.5" of water and 12"snow, you would get 62.4/12 = 5.2 pounds. ( Full Answer )

# How much does a cubic foot of ice weigh?

Once cubic foot of water weighs 62lbs.
water expands 4% when frozen, so......
one cubic foot of water becomes 1.04 cubic feet of ice, so......
one cubic foot of ice should weigh 59.52 lbs.
I surmized this by subtracting 4% from the weight of the water since 1.04 cubic feet of ice weighs the same… as one cubic foot of water and because we only want the weight of one cubic foot of ice..
1water = 1.04Ice = 62lbs so (1.04Ice - 4%) = 1 Ice = 59.52 lbs.
Please, Check it yourself, I'm no mathematician. ( Full Answer )

# How much does 30 square foot of concrete weigh?

It is all dependant on how thick the concrete is. You take the square footage and turn that into cubed feet (where the thickness comes in) if its 1" thick you multiply the square footage by.083, if its 2" thick you multiply by.17. To come up with this number you take the thickness say 3" and divide …that by 12 (12 inches in a foot), so for 3 inches you get .25. So back to the question at hand, say your 30 square feet of concrete is 6 inches thick, your equation would look like this: 30 X .5 = 15. So 15 is your cubed footage. You then multiply this number by 150 which is the weight in pounds of 1 cubic foot of concrete. The number you come up with is 2,250. That is the amount in pounds of your 30 square feet of concrete assuming it is 6 inches thick. ( Full Answer )

# How much does a square foot of concrete 4 thick weigh?

Short Answer: About 50 lbs per foot square by 4" slab Detailed Calculation: A number of references online give the density of concrete as 2400 Kg/m^3 which is about the density of solid limestone often used as the agregate in concrete. Given that there are exactly 2.20462262 lbs per kilogram a…nd 39.3700787 inches per meter that works out to about 0.0867 lbs per cubic inch. Assuming you meant a 12" by 12" by 4" slab that is 576 cubic inches times .0867 which works out to 49.94 lbs per 12" x 12" x 4" slab So in the future it should be easy to remember that a square foot of concrete that is four inches thick weighs about 50 pounds. Keep in mind that different types of concrete may vary in density depending on the type of cement used, amount of water, type and size of aggregate mixed in how much sand etc. Fortunately most type of stone and sand used for concrete are pretty close in density and the excess water in the mix will evaporate. So 50 pounds per square foot 4" deep is probably a good estimate in most cases as long as there isn't a lot of steel reinforcing bar or wire embedded in the concrete. Steel is about three times as dense as stone. ( Full Answer )

# How much did the snow weigh that collapsed the Metrodome?

The Teflon-coated fiberglass of the roof covers about 10 acres and weighs over 580,000 pounds according to the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission website. Snow is tough to call but a rule of thumb figure is 10 cubic inches of snow equal one cubic inch of rain. There are 6,272,640 square in…ches per acre. 1728 cubic inches per cubic foot. A cubic foot of pure water weighs a bit over 62.4 pounds. If there were about 10 inches of snow across the roof, then each inch of roof area would equal a cubic inch of water making 3630 cubic feet per acre weighing roughly 225,000 pounds or over 100 tons per acre . Looking at it, the dome obviously didn't get a uniform coverage of 10 inches (although I understand the Minneapolis metro area got 17" of snow) much less a uniform coverage at all and I don't know enough about how snow sticks to a Teflon dome that maintains a internal temperature of 50 degrees to say much more than that. The dome went up in Oct. of '81 and suffered snow tears in '81, '82, and '83 that I can find but I don't see any issues for the Halloween blizzard of '91 that dropped almost 28 and a half inches of snow.
