Appendices Page | 214 2017 APPENDIX “C” Actual weights vs. volume weights (always use the greater weight) Weight/Volume Ratios y Road … 10 : 1 (10 lb = 1 ft 3 ) Quick Calculations (Road in Imperial Units) y Road shipment ~ dims are 21”L x 20”W x 22”H, and weighs 80 lb. i) Determine cubic inches ~ 21 x 20 x 22 = 9,240 in 3 ii) Determine cubic feet ~ 9,240 ÷ 1,728 = 5.35 ft 3 iii) Determine road volume weight ~ 5.35 x 10 (road ratio) = 53.5 lb. Therefore, since the actual weight of the shipment (80 lb) is heavier than the road volume weight (53.5 lb), use the actual weight.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
