# What is the mass of styrofoam?

## What is the mass of styrofoam?

Typical polystyrene foam packaging and insulation is usually in the density range of 1 to 2 pounds per cubic foot. What this means is if you have a 12-inch x 12-inch x 12-inch cube of solid foam, it would weigh between 1 and 2 pounds.

## How do you calculate the weight of styrofoam?

Styrofoam weighs 0.05 gram per cubic centimeter or 50 kilogram per cubic meter, i.e. density of styrofoam is equal to 50 kg/m³; at 20°C (68°F or 293.15K) at standard atmospheric pressure.

**What is the density of styrofoam cube?**

It can be manufactured in different densities. Our High Density Smoothfoam items are over 4 lb/ft3 density and our Low Density is 1.25 lb/ft3 How is that figured out? If you had a 1 cubic foot of our low density product it would weigh 1.25 lbs and the high density would weigh 4 lbs.

**What is the density of foam in g ml?**

Depending on the process conditions and the amount of water added, the density of these materials can range from as low as 0.015g/ml or lower to as high as 0.95 g/ml. Polyurethanes can also be foamed using low-boiling, inert liquids such as fluorocarbons which are mixed with the polyol portion.

### How do you find the density of styrofoam?

To calculate the density of a piece of foam, you divide the weight of the foam by its width x height x length. If you measure in feet, density is expressed in weight per cubic foot.

### What is the density of foam board?

**How do you find the density of Styrofoam?**

**What density foams?**

Foam density is the mass of a foam’s material within a cubic foot. The denser the foam, the more compact the foam material is. This, in turn, makes the foam heavier. A foam’s density is characterized by pounds and is determined by taking its mass and dividing it by its unit volume.

#### What is the density of foam in G cm3?

Commercial expanding PU foams are available in a range of densities from 0.048 g/cm3 to 0.42 g/cm3.

#### How is density measured in Styrofoam?

**What does foam board weigh?**

Polyurethane Foam Board It typically weighs 2 to 3 pounds per square foot. It is sold in 12-pound, 15-pound, 20-pound and 30-pound densities.

**How good is 32 density foam?**

High-density foam means higher quality as it has a strong cell structure. Consumers should check the specifications of the foams used. On a standard basis for the Indian market, PU foams should have 32 to 40 density, memory foam should have 50 to 60 density and Latex should have 55 to 65 density.
