# vue-volume-calculator

The Plaster Calculator allows you enter the dimensions of a solid shape, and then calculates the volume of that shape as well as the approximate amount of plaster and water required using common plaster mixing formulas.

## Notes:

### USG's Formula:

The USG calculator contains some pretty esoteric formulas:

• First, calculate a ratio based on the consistency: ratio = (-0.00004 × consistency^3) + (0.0154 × consistency^2) - (2.23 × consistency) + 164.25

• Second, calculate pounds of plaster and water from ratio and consistency: ratio × cubic feet = pounds of plaster pounds of plaster * consistency / 100 = pounds of water

### Keith Simpson's Formula:

volume in cubic inches × 11 = grams of water

grams of water × (100 / consistency) = grams of Pottery Plaster

Keith Simpson, Alfred University

Water should be room temperature

Sift plaster through fingers into water

Slake plaster for 3 minutes

Mix for 3 minutes

### Andrew Martin's Formula:

volume in cubic inches / 80 = quarts of water

quarts of water × 3 = pounds of plaster

Simplified technique by Andrew Martin from "The Essential Guide to Mold Making & Slip Casting". This technique creates a slightly thicker plaster as Andrew has rounded the required water down to make the calculation simpler and allow for the water to be measured by volume.
