## How To Calculate Weight Of Mild Steel Plates For Billing

### Example 1:

Assume,

The length of the mild plate = L = 1 m

The breadth of the mild plate = B = 1 m

The thickness of the mild plate = T = 10 mm = 0.01 m

To calculate the weight, first we need to find out the volume of the steel plate.

Volume = Length x Breadth x Thickness

= L x B x T

= 1 x 1 x 0.01 = 0.01 m3

Weight of steel plate = Volume of steel plate x Density of steel.

We know that the density of steel = 7850 kg/m3

∴ Weight = 0.01 x 7850 = 78.5 kg

#### Example 2:

The length of the mild plate = L = 1 m

The breadth of the mild plate = B = 1 m

The thickness of the mild plate = T = 70 mm = 0.07 m

Volume Of plate = L x B x T = 1 x 1 x 0.07 =0.07 m3

Weight of steel plate = Volume of steel plate x Density of steel.

Weight of steel plate = 0.07 x 7850 = 549.5 Kg.

Similarly, you can calculate the weight of different thicknesses of steel plates. I have already calculated the weight of plates with different thicknesses which are standard and available in the market.

Size of steel plate : Length =1 m, Breadth = 1 m
