#### Formula:

Ponderal Index (PI) for
Adult = Weight / Height^{3}
Child = 0.1 x PI ( Adult )
The ponderal index is also called as the corpulence index or rohrer's index. The two main factors required to calculate corpulence index is the height and weight of the person. Find rohrer index using the ponderal index calculator.

**What is a Ponderal Index?:** It is the ratio of the person's height to weight. It can be calculated for both adult, kids and infants. This method is normally used by pediatrics. It can also be used to identify infants whose soft tissue mass is below the normal stage of skeletal development.

The corpulence index calculator can find the child and adult rohrer index value. The height and weight can be entered with different measuring units.

### Example:

Danny is 25 years old. He weighs about 40 kg and his height is measured as 2 m. Calculate his rohrer index.

#### Solution:

Adult = 40 / 2^{3}

= 5

Child = 0.1 x 5

= 0.5
