Type of Fuel
 Weight per Volume (specific weight) Type of Fuel [lbs / US gal] [lbs / IMP gal] [Kg / US gal] [Kg / IMP gal] [Kg / Liter] AV Gasoline Jet A Jet B/JP-4 Other weight per volume (specific weight) based on temperature          [oC]      [oF]    Note: results for weight per volume are typically accurate up to one decimal point only. Due to the inherent variability of fuels even the same type of fuel may vary greatly depending on its origin. The figures provided here are a very rough estimate. Values based on FAA-H-8083-1A, Aircraft Weight and Balance Handbook Chart, page 7-13. protect type of fuel weight per volume parameters*

Instructions: Select type of fuel (if appropriate), then begin by entering the weight and balance information for the longitudinal axis. Remember to
select the appropriate calculation mode for each row before typing the information for that row. When entering a fuel quantity, you may use volume
quantities by checking the fuel box in the desired row. This will then cause the sheet to calculate fuel weight based on the fuel selected and the weight
per volume
value. If you are entering the fuel weight directly then you do not need to check the fuel box. The description box is completely ignored
in the computations. Use this box to describe the content of the row entered. Once the longitudinal axis is entered, the lateral axis can be entered if
this is desired, otherwise ignore this section. The lateral axis is generally used for weight and balance calculations for helicopters.

 CG Shift
 Weight Shifted [lbs] [kg] [oz] [g] Distance Shifted [in] - L / + R [m] - L / + R [ft] - L / + R [cm] - L / + R Total Weight [lbs] [kg] [oz] [g] Shift in CG (ΔCG) [in] - L / + R [m] - L / + R [ft] - L / + R [cm] - L / + R

Enter any three fields then press "Eval" on any remaining field for that field's result.

 CG % Aft of MAC
 Distance Aft of LEMAC [in] [m] [ft] [cm] LEMAC [in] [m] [ft] [cm] CG  % Aft of LEMAC [%]

Enter any two fields then press "Eval" on any remaining field for that field's result.

Abbreviations:     MAC = Mean Aerodynamic Cord
LEMAC = Leading Edge Mean Aerodynamic Cord

 CG from Datum

 Ballast
 Weight of Aircraft without Ballast [lbs] [kg] [oz] [g] Distance Out of Limits [in] - L / + R [m] - L / + R [ft] - L / + R [cm] - L / + R Distance Between Ballast and Desired CG [in] - L / + R [m] - L / + R [ft] - L / + R [cm] - L / + R Ballast Weight [lbs] [kg] [oz] [g]

Enter any three fields then press "Eval" on any remaining field for that field's result.
Note: "Distance Out of Limits" and "Distance Between Ballast and Desired CG" must have opposite signs for balancing to be possible.
