1) MILD STEEL (MS)
SHEET
WEIGHT (KGS) = LENGTH (MM) X WIDTH (MM) X 0. 00000785 X THICKNESS
example – The weight of MS Sheet of 1mm thickness and size 1250 MM X 2500 MM shall be
2500MM X 1250 MM X 0.00000785 X 1 = 24.53 KGS/ SHEET
—————————————————
ROLLED STEEL CHANNELS

MS SQUARE
WEIGHT (KGS ) = WIDTH X WIDTH X 0.00000785 X LENGTH.
Example : A Square of size 25mm and length 1 metre then the weight shall be.
25x25X 0.00000785 X 1000mm = 4.90 kgs/metre

MS ROUND
WEIGHT (KGS ) = 3.14 X 0.00000785 X ((diameter / 2)X( diameter / 2)) X LENGTH.
Example : A Round of 20mm diameter and length 1 metre then the weight shall be.
3.14 X 0.00000785 X ((20/2) X ( 20/2)) X 1000 mm = 2.46 kgs / metre

SS ROUND
DIA (mm) X DIA (mm) X 0.00623 = WEIGHT PER METRE
SS / MS Pipe
OD ( mm) – W.Tthick(mm) X W.Thick (mm) X 0.0248 = Weight Per Metre
OD ( mm) – W.Tthick(mm) X W.Thick (mm) X 0.00756 = Weight Per Foot

SS / MS CIRCLE
DIA(mm) X DIA (mm) X THICK(mm) 0.0000063 = Kg Per Piece

SS sheet
Length (Mtr) X Width (Mtr) X Thick(mm) X 8 = Weight Per Piece
Length (ft) X Width (ft) X Thick(inch) X 3 /4 = Weight Per Piece

S.S HEXAGONAL BAR
DIA (mm) X DIA (mm) X 0.00680 = WT. PER Mtr
Dia (mm) X Dia (mm) X 0.002072 = Wt. Per foot.

BRASS SHEET
WEIGHT (KGS) = LENGTH (MM) X BREADTH (MM) X 0. 0000085 X THICKNESS
Example – The weight of brass sheet of thickness 1 mm, length 1220mm and breadth 355mm shall be
1220 X355X 0.0000085 X 1 = 3.68 Kgs/Sheet

COPPER SHEET
WEIGHT (KGS) = LENGTH (MM) X BREADTH (MM) X 0. 0000087 X THICKNESS
Example – The weight of coppper sheet of thickness 1 mm, length 1220mm and breadth 355mm shall be
1220X355 X 0.0000087 X 1 = 3.76 Kgs/Sheet

BRASS / COPPER PIPE
OD (mm) – THICK (mm) X THICK(mm) X 0.0260 = WEIGHT PER METRE

ALUMINUM SHEET
WEIGHT (KGS) = LENGTH (MM) X BREADTH (MM) X 0. 00000026 X THICKNESS
Example – The weight of Aluminum sheet of thickness 1 mm, length 2500mm and breadth 1250 mm shall be
2500x1250X 0.0000026 X 1 = 8.12 Kgs/Sheet

ALUMINIUM PIPE
OD (mm) – THICK(mm) X THICK(mm) X0.0083 = WEIGHT PER METRE

SS sheet
please clearify this as u mentioned above. both given are weight per piece so confusing????
Length (Mtr) * Width (Mtr) * Thick(mm) * 8 = Weight Per Piece
Length (ft) * Width (ft) * Thick(inch) * 3 /4 = Weight Per Piece

what is the weight of 50x50x5 ms angle at per meter?

• pavan sheth April 7, 2011 at 4:10 am

it’s to easy to calculate baby as below1.
Weight of MS Angle = (2*W-T)*T*L*7840 kg (All units are in MKS)
Where,
S = Width of any side in mtr
T = Thickness of the angle in mtr.
L = Length of the angle in mtr.
7840 is the density of MS in kg / m3.

For an example, Suppose angle size 50 x 6 mm
Then weight works out from the above formulae = 4.5 kg (approx), pl. give a try.

2. Weight of MS Pipe = Pi*(R2-r2)*L*7840 kg. (All units are in MKS)
Where,
R = Outer radius of the pipe
r = Inner radius of the pipe

3. For Sheet you can apply Weight = Volume x Density.
Example, Suppose an MS Sheet dimesion given as 1.2 m x 2.4 m x 2 mm thick
Then weight of this sheet = 1.2*2.4*0.002*7840 kg = 45 kg (Approx)

shrikant,what steel are u talking about? well if it is ms i supposed it is square.width*width*0.00000785*length.50*50*0.00000785*1000=19.5kgs/m
