## About Cardboard Box Weight Calculator (Formula)

The Cardboard Box Weight Calculator is a tool that allows you to calculate the weight of a cardboard box based on its dimensions.

The formula used to calculate the weight of a cardboard box is typically

**L x W x H / 166**

where L is the length of the box in inches, W is the width of the box in inches, and H is the height of the box in inches. The result of the calculation is typically given in pounds (lbs).

This formula is widely used in the packaging industry and it is based on the density of the corrugated cardboard, which is usually around 0.05 pounds per cubic inch.

It is important to note that this formula is based on the assumption that the cardboard is new and has not been damaged or compressed in any way.

If the cardboard is damaged or compressed, the weight of the box will be different than the weight calculated using this formula.

Additionally, the weight of the box can also be affected by other factors such as the type of adhesive or fasteners used to seal the box, the type of ink or printing used on the box, and the weight of any other materials or items placed inside the box.

Please be aware that this is a rough estimation and you should consider other factors like the type of cardboard, the humidity, the temperature, the way the box is packed, and the weight of the products inside.
