I'm trying to understand how to correctly calculate fabric weight. Math is not my forte. But I'm going to give this a try. I located some Spinnaker Ripstop Nylon .75 oz a square yard. I'm looking at getting 9 yards, the cloth is 1.66 yards wide or 60"
If I calculate the overall weight with my rudimentary math skills:
9 x 1.66 ~ 15 Square Yards (actual is 14.94)
15 x .75 ~ 11.25 ounces (actual is 11.205)
Question 1: Is that correct?
I've seen some of you through some crazy formulas out there when figuring calculating the weights of tarps and hammocks
Question 2: Would you consider .75 oz Spinnaker strong enough for a 10 x 9 tarp?
