If you’re working in the metalworking industry, even you’re engineers, you will try to find one calculator to help you calculate the weight of various metals and steels including ms plate, gi sheet, structural steel, ms angle, mild steel, steel bar, square tube, angle, aluminum etc.

## Theoretical Metal Weight Calculator

Below is the calculator for you to calculate the weight of various metals. What you need to do is calculate the sectional area and find the metal density.

For the metal density, you can also refer to:

From the above two posts, you will find the density of various metals and alloys.

However, sometimes you may want to learn the weight calculation formula and keep it in your mind, here is it:

In order to help you quickly find the metal weight formula, I made infographic which is not only practical but also beautiful. (To the bottom)

Besides, recently I’m working on making steel weight chart in order to help the one who needs it. However, when I finished it, I find the steel weight calculation formula is much more convenient and accurate than the steel weight table, so I drop it.

P.S: Among all of the metal weight calculation formula in the following part, there are two kinds of metals that are not mentioned, which are I beam steel and H beam steel.

Do you know the difference between H beam steel and I beam steel?

Do you know how to calculate the weight of H beam steel and I beam steel?

## Steel Plate

## Flat Steel Tube

• Formula: (Edge length + Edge width) × 2 × thickness×0.00785×length (m)
• E.g: 100mm×50mm×5mm (thickness)×6m (length)
• Calculation: (100+50) × 2×5×0.00785×6=70.65kg

## Rectangular Steel Tube

• Formula: Edgewidthmm×4×thickness×0.00785×length(m)
• E.g: 50mm×5mm (thickness)×6m (length)
• Calculation: 50×4×5×0.00785×6=47.1kg

## Equal-leg angle Steel

• Formula: (Edge width×2-thickness)×thickness×0.00785×length (m)
• E.g:  50mm×50mm×5 thickness×6m(length)
• Calculation: (50×2-5)×5×0.00785×6=22.37kg

## Unequal-leg Angle Steel

• Formula: (Edge width+Edge width-thickness) × thickness×0.0076×lengthm
• E.g: 100mm×80mm×8 thickness×6m(length)
• Calculation: (100+80-8) × 8×0.0076×6=62.746kg

## Brass Tube

• Formula: (OD-Wall thickness) × thickness(mm)×length(m)×0.0267
