*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

**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

sir, thanx for sharing ur knowledge….

Sir, kindly let us know how to calculate weight of aluminium circle and about blank size calculation for ss, ms , al components

Please let me know the weight & rate of the following MS pipe 16 gauge details,

60mm,20mm & 10 mm dia rods

please let me know how i calculate the compaction of paver block.

sir,let me know where we can learn all about calculation of coloumns,beams &rings.

thanx for sharing ur knowledgeâ€¦.

kindly provide weight of 60mm round bar in 1 mtr.

Kindly let me know the weights of the following per meter lenght.

1. M.S. 40X40X5 MM SQUARE TUBE.

2. M.S. 03 MM EXT. DIA CIRCULAR PIPE WITH 5 MM GUAGE.

3. M.S. 5MM GUAGE FLAT BAR WITH 10MM WIDTH.

Kindly let me know that how calculate ms angle 50x50x5, 1 meter length

how i can calculate the weight of chequred plate

Add 6.1 kg/m with unitweight of the plate ,ie if u have 5 mm thickness chq plate ,unit weight will be 39.25 + 6..1 = 45.35 kg/m ( unit wt of 5mm ms plate is 39.25 )

KIndly let me know the how to convert Thickness from “Guage to mm”

Example: MS 16 Guage sheet = ? MM

Kindly let me know how to convert weight meter to kilogram

kindly let me know how to convert angle iron weight meter to kilogram

thanks to Mr Naven for pointing out a huge error in this. It has been rectified now. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Thanks for giving such a nice information which is realy very helpful to all engineers

Bhore Shyam Pune

Please meaning of 3.14 in formula.

is standard formula for all Ms pipe ?

MS ROUND

WEIGHT (KGS ) = 3.14 * 0.00000785 * ((diameter / 2)*( diameter / 2)) * LENGTH

3.14 MEANS PAI (VALUE)

Iron formula of length

0.00000785 is ?

Density of ms steel 7850kg/m^3
