Estimate the Weight of a Roll of Paper


Roll diameter  =  
Core diameter  =  
Roll width  =  
Factor  =  
 
Roll Weight  =  

Formula:

[(Roll diameter²) - (Core Diameter²)] x Roll Width x Factor  =  APPROX. ROLL WEIGHT

Example

Calculate the weight of a roll of 50# Offset, that is 35" wide, has a 40" diameter, and is wound on a 3" core.

[(40 x 40) - (3 x 3)] x 35 x .022 = 1,225.07 lbs.
