When you want to calculate gasoline, diesel fuel, liquefied petroleum gas not in bulk, in weight units as basic unit of calculation is necessary to take their actual density (specific gravity). To calculate this quite simple. For this you just need available the number of liters multiply by actual density. Then the result is divided by 1000, and obtained the required number.
The only thing that can affect the conversion of fuel from gallons to tonnes, is the temperature. The hotter, the more fuel specific weight. Therefore, the Ministry of industry and energy of the Russian Federation to facilitate these calculations and to do it without errors, made the decision to average the density value for gasoline. For example, for fuel grade A-76 (AI-80) the average specific density is 0,715 grams per cubic centimeter. For gasoline AI-92 is set to the average actual density within 0,735 grams per cubic centimeter, and for AI-95, this figure is 0.750 in grams. As for brand fuel AI-98, the average specific weight is 0,765 grams per cubic centimeter.
In the case where it is necessary to calculate the translation from liters to tonnes of diesel fuel (this is usually necessary in the retail trade), you need to use the following formula: M = V x 0.769 /1000. Where M is the volume of diesel fuel in tons, V is the volume of diesel fuel in litres, 0,769 is a density for diesel fuel is based on kilograms per liter.
It is possible to calculate the transfer of fuel to tonnes, use the average value, which was adopted in Rostekhnadzor. There are own rules in calculations fuel density. For example, for liquefied natural gas, the average value of 0.6 tonnes per cubic meter, petrol - 0.75 tons per cubic meter, and for diesel fuel, the figure of 0.84 t/m3.
Advice 2: How to calculate volumetric weight
Need to determine volumetric weight occurring during transportation or the shipment of the Luggage. There are certain rules by which must be paid this type of service. Is not taken into account the physical weight of the items, and their bulk weight.
Dimensional weight reflects, first of all, the size of the load. The latter may not be heavy, but take up much space. The car, the Luggage compartment of the plane or the van of the truck holds a certain amount of Packed items. Therefore, the rate for transportation is not calculated by the actual weight and the volume ofthat cargo occupies.
Dispatchers freight service conducted the measurements, their "verdict" as a rule, is not discussed. But the sender should be able to calculate itself to provide for the material costs. The calculation formula is as follows: 1 kg equals 6000 cubic inches and 1 cubic meter is equal to 167 kg. the Volume multiplied by 167 kg.
Cargo is defined as a rectangle. Measured length, width, height of package, whether it's a box, roll or bag (here almereyda most protruding parts). Paid for the highest value of actual or volumetric weight.For example, the product weighs 65 kg and is Packed in a big box 90х90х90. Multiply the height, length and width. The figures show the volume - 0,729 m3. Multiply these data on the 167 and get 121,7 kg. This will be the volumetric weight. Although the actual weight is less, will have to pay именно122 kg. Figures are rounded upward. Another example. You are sending 120 kg of soft toys in plastic bags with a volume of 2 cubic meters. Pay for the goods should be according to the formula, the highest value of the volumetric weight, namely: 334 kg (167х2). Soft items should be Packed as tightly as possible to avoid paying too much. The same product, well pressed into bales, for example, 0.5 m3, will provide significant savings in the payment, because the goods will be deemed to be voluminous.
When the volumetric weight exceeds the actual, then paid so many pounds, how many leaves. For example, in a box the size of 60х40х60 are objects that weigh 48 kg Volumetric weight is 24 kg, respectively, paid 48 kg. so the shipping cost is calculated by volumetric weight if it exceeds actual.
