This tool helps you calculate the exact amount of material you need for your project.

## How to Use the Calculator

To use this calculator, follow these steps:

- Enter the
**Length**in meters. - Enter the
**Width**in meters. - Optionally, enter the
**Height**in meters. If left empty, it defaults to 1 meter. - Enter the
**Material Density**in kg/m³. - Click the
**Calculate**button. - The calculated result will be displayed in the result field as the total material needed in kilograms.

## How It Works

The calculator computes the **volume** of the material by multiplying the Length, Width, and Height.

Volume formula: `Volume = Length × Width × Height`

It then multiplies this volume by the material density to get the **total material needed** in kg.

Material needed formula: `Total Material = Volume × Density`

## Limitations

This calculator assumes a uniform density and does not account for any irregular shapes or non-uniform material distribution. It is best used for simple geometric shapes and standard density materials.
