How much does a piece of wood weigh?

\n. \n Whatever it is... \n. \nA 'piece of wood' is very vague. It all depends on the size of the piece and what type of wood it is. Strictly, the weight is the volume of the piece multiplied by the density of the particular wood.\n. \n How to figure it out for yourself \n. \nWood floats in water therefore it weighs less than water. Water weighs about 80 pounds per cubic foot. If the wood is wet (freshly cut) it might be 20 to 25 percent water or about 20 pounds per cubic foot. If it is old and dry it might be 5 percent water or about 4 pounds per cubic foot. To this you need to add the weight of the dry wood itself.\n. \nThe weight of completely dry wood is related to the compactness of the cells which depends on the species of wood. "Softwoods"such as balsa or pine are relatively light (large cells with lots of empty space in between which is why they are "soft") while "hardwoods" like oak, walnut or ebony are relatively heavy (small cells packed closely togehter which makes them "hard"). Completely dry pine might weigh 10 pounds per cubic foot (this is a guess, not a fact) while completely dry walnut might weigh 30 to 40 pounds per cubic foot (another guess).\n. \nWood still floats even when completely wet so the total weight will always be less than the weight of the same volume of water.

How much does pine wood cost?

How much does a cord of fire wood weigh?

A cord is defined as 128 cubic feet (3.62 m 3 ), corresponding to a woodpile 4 feet (122 cm) wide, 4 feet (1.2 m) high and 8 feet (244 cm) long. So the weight would depend on the type of wood. Cherry or apple would weigh several times what balsa would. Also, the pieces of wood are irregular in shape so you would not be able to weigh a "cord" of wood with precision. That is why "cord" is a term of measure not weight, just like inch, foot, yard, mile, square ft., etc. ----- A cord of wood, dried and stacked well, will vary in weight from about 2000 to 4000 pounds. Clearly, softwoods, such as pine, will weigh on the lighter side and hardwoods on the heavier. If the wood is not dried, it is likely to weigh from 3000 to 5500 pounds, but different woods contain different amounts of water, so it is a little harder to predict without knowing the specifics. There is a good web page with information about this, run by the University of Nebraska, at the link below. It provides a good deal of information, including weight of a cord, by species, dried and not.

How much does a 4x4 wood post weigh?

An exact answer to your question is difficult because there are many factors that must be taken into account, but we can guestimate an answer. Different types of wood have different densities. I believe that most of the posts sold in home improvement stores like Home Depot or Lowe's are Southern Yellow Pine or Cedar. You have to also take into account the moisture content of the wood. Most treated wood sold at home improvement stores is Grade 2 and, when green, has a moisture content of 17% to 20%. You can feel the heaviness and moisture in the wood when you pick up a fresh post. This moisture in the wood adds a lot of weight. And, of course, the length of the post makes a difference. For this example, we'll assume an 8' post. Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) has a density of 36 to 41 pounds per cubic foot with a 20% moisture content. Naturally, as the wood dries out and with low humidity, it will weigh less. We'll use an average of 38.5 pounds per cu.ft. Calculate the volume of wood. Actual (not nominal) size of the post is 3.5" x 3.5" x 96" = 1176 cubic inches. One cubic foot = 12" x 12" x 12" = 1728 cubic inches. Divide 1176 by 1728 = 0.6806 cubic feet. Calculate weight. 0.6806 cu.ft. x 38.5 pounds per cu.ft. = 26.20 pounds. So, a 8' 4x4 post made out of SYP with a moisture content of around 20% weighs somewhere in the neighborhood of 26 pounds. HTH.

Is pine wood good for the environment?

Pine trees? Yes I would say that generally they are good for the environment. Reagan famously said 'trees pollute more than cars do'. While this is, ofcourse political crazy spin, there are some truth in the trees do emit. Specifically, Isoprene was what Reagan was referring to but to claim that a natural cycle of pine emissions is the same as adding fossil carbon to an existing system is plainly lying. Also, pine offers products like wood and paper, habitat for animals and other plants, cleans the air and water we need for life... No question in my mind that pine is good for the environment.

No. Aromatic softwoods, like cedar and pine, basically have toxic fumes (they release phenols, which can affect liver function). There is some evidence to suggest that heat-treated pine is safe, but most people suggesting avoiding it: better safe than sorry. Don't use these wood chips as litter or bedding, either. There are many natural materials that rabbits can safely chew and eat. Rabbits need a diet high in fibre to maintain healthy teeth and digestion. Hay should make up the most of a rabbit's diet, but other materials are good too, for example: . apple wood . willow wood . woven grass . etc. Always make sure the materials you give to your rabbit aren't treated with toxic substances (glues, paints, shellacs, etc).

Weight depends on the force of gravity and that can vary from one point on the earth to another.
