# Wood Density Calculator

The density of a material is defined as its mass per unit volume. A fibrous tissue in the root and stem of trees and plants is called as wood. In general, Wood is differentiated as Low Density and High Density Wood. Timber with density below 540 kg/m3 are called as low density wood and with density above 540 kg/m3 are called as high density wood.

The density of a material is defined as its mass per unit volume. A fibrous tissue in the root and stem of trees and plants is called as wood. In general, Wood is differentiated as Low Density and High Density Wood. Timber with density below 540 kg/m3 are called as low density wood and with density above 540 kg/m3 are called as high density wood.

#### Formula:

ρmax = m / Vmin ρmin = m / Vmax Where, ρmax = Maximum Density ρmin = Minimum Density m = Wood Mass Vmax = Maximum Volume Vmin = Minimum Volume

Some of the well known timber with low wood density timber woods are Radiata, Redwood, Salu Salu, Totara. Some of the well known timber with high wood density are Saligna, Teak, Walnut. This calculator will help you to calculate the density of wood with the mass, minimum and maximum volume.

### Example

#### Wood Density

Find the density of wood with weight 2 kg, minimum and maximum volume 12 and 14 m3.
Maximum Density = 2 / 14 = 0.1429 kg/m3
Minimum Density = 2 / 12 = 0.1667 kg/m3
