## Concrete Column Formula

For those who like to do the math by hand, or are curious as to how it's done, below is the formula used:

The Formula:(Diameter × PI × Height × Height × Quantity) ÷ 4

## How to Measure a Column

Measuring a concrete column is surprising simple. It involves measuring the height and diameter of your desired column. As you've likely already seen, you can use our handy column calculator above. If you still want to do it by hand, you can use the steps below. Let's begin!

**Diameter:**Measure the diameter of your column. This is essentially the length of the column from end to end through the middle.**Height:**Measure the height of the column. This will be how tall you want the column to be.

That's it! Now, you can take those measurements and plug them into the formula above and you'll have your estimations.
