Re: How to calculate the weight of a limestone ashlar?
- Thank you for your replies -- they confirmed what I had in the meantime
managed find out by downloading a program -- the AVD Volume Calculator
(there is a free 20 day trial). http://www.avlandesign.com/calc.htm
I managed with my poor (never-used) high school maths to calculate the
weight easily and without damaging any ancient artifacts!
The Calculator gives the specific gravity as 2610 kg/m³ for limestone --
there should probably be an adjustment made for nari limestone though.
The results -- the 240cm x 57cm x 57 cm limestone ashlar weighs just
over 2 tons(metric).
