# Ponderal index

The ponderal index is somewhat comparable to Body mass index, but gives a more fair comparison between individuals of different stature.

**Instructions:**

1. Measure weight and height and enter values.

**Background**

Ponderal index is calculated as weight divided by height raised to the power of 3.

Ponderal index = kg / (m x m x m)

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

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).
