The Plastic Material Weight Calculator is a tool used to determine the mass of plastic materials based on their volume and density. It operates on a simple formula:

#### Formula

Weight (in grams) = Volume (in cubic centimeters, cm³) x Density (in grams per cubic centimeter, g/cm³)

**Weight:**Mass of the plastic material in grams.**Volume:**Volume of the plastic material in cubic centimeters.**Density:**Density of the plastic material in grams per cubic centimeter.

The density values for various plastic materials are:

**Polyethylene (PE):**- Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE): Density ≈ 0.92 g/cm³
- High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE): Density ≈ 0.95 g/cm³

**Polypropylene (PP):**- Density ≈ 0.90 g/cm³

**Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC):**- Rigid PVC: Density ≈ 1.40 g/cm³
- Flexible PVC: Density ≈ 1.15 g/cm³

**Polystyrene (PS):**- General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS): Density ≈ 1.04 g/cm³
- High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS): Density ≈ 1.05 g/cm³

**Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET):**- Density ≈ 1.38 g/cm³

**Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS):**- Density ≈ 1.05 g/cm³

**Polycarbonate (PC):**- Density ≈ 1.20 g/cm³

**Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF):**- Density ≈ 1.78 g/cm³

### Example of Plastic Material Weight Calculator

Suppose you have a volume of 100 cm³ of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) with a density of approximately 0.95 g/cm³. Using the Plastic Material Weight Calculator's formula:

Weight = Volume × Density Weight = 100 cm³ × 0.95 g/cm³ Weight = 95 grams
