Pounds per Cubic Foot, or pcf

Pounds per cubic foot (pcf) is a unit of measurement used to express the density of a substance. It indicates the amount of mass in pounds that occupies one cubic foot of space. This unit is commonly used to describe the density of various materials, including solids, liquids, and gases. For example, if a material has a density of 50 pounds per cubic foot (50 pcf), it means that one cubic foot of that material weighs 50 pounds. It’s a practical unit for comparing the weight-to-volume ratio of different substances, especially in industries like construction, manufacturing, and materials science.
