# How much does a pine cube weigh depending on humidity?

In life there are situations when you face simple, seemingly, questions, but you can not give an exact answer to them. During construction, for example, you may need to answer the question: how much does a pine cube weigh? Nobody can give an exact answer. The weight of timber is primarily dependent on their breed. The second important factor is the humidity. From the tree species, its density depends, which, in turn, directly affects the weight.

In order to know the necessary information, if necessary, let's see how much the pine cube weighs. This may be necessary when buying timber to make sure that the goods are shipped correctly.

## How much does a pine cube weigh?

Calculate the weight of the tree is not difficult. You need to know its size, humidity and density. The density of wood is an average of 500 kg / m 3 with a standard moisture content of 12%.

Humidity indicators are divided into four levels:

• Wet (more than 45%);
• Raw (from 25 to 44%);
• Air-dry (from 19 to 24%);
• Dry (from 10 to 18%).

So, the cube of pine is how much? The results are presented in the form of a table.

 Moisture of wood Dry (From 1 to 5%) Standard (10 to 12%) 15% 25% 35% 45% 55% 65% 75% 85% 78-90% 100% How much does a pine cube weigh? 480 505 510 530 570 615 660 700 740 790 750-820 850

## Weight, depending on the variety of raw materials

There are several types of pine:

• Cedar;
• Siberian;
• Ordinary.

The weight of wood also varies from its varieties. If the values for cedar and Siberian are the same, then the weight of ordinary is different from them. The figures in the table above are typical for ordinary pine.

The weight of one cubic meter of cedar and Siberian is shown in the table below:

 Moisture of wood 15% 35% 55% 75% 95% How much does a pine cube weigh? 440 495 565 640 715

So, knowing the moisture content of wood, using tables it is easy to determine its weight. This is the simplest way. Similar tables are often used in construction, where the main material is a tree. They help to choose the best variant of wood for erection of this or that building.
