Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed
to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just don't
know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Quoting Carl:
Thank you for providing the Ponderal index calculator, just a quick comment to say that the units in the weight should be kg (kg with a small case "k" and not Kg).

Technically, the units used for weight should be Newtons (N). The quantity should be mass instead of weight if we want to use kilograms.

Do you have plans for making a ponderal index calculator for children shorter than 4'11"? Or if this calculator doesn't apply to children at all, then one for children specifically?

Paul -> yes, that is the formula. We will very soon update this calculator with the option to use imperial units. (Why couldn't we not just all agree to use SI-units ;-)

Formula: like density: mass divided by volume (height x height x height)

The Index is for international units. For imperial units and other local units like stones and handwidth you need to translate them.
