Mild steel plates are widely used in construction works. There are different sizes mild plates available in the market. In this article, I will explain how to calculate the weight of different sizes mild steel plates. This will surely help you in 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

Thickness (mm) | Weight (Kg) |

3 | 23.55 |

4 | 31.4 |

5 | 39.25 |

6 | 47.1 |

8 | 62.8 |

10 | 78.5 |

12 | 94.2 |

14 | 109.9 |

16 | 125.6 |

18 | 141.3 |

20 | 157 |

22 | 172.7 |

25 | 195.2 |

28 | 219.8 |

32 | 251.2 |

36 | 282.6 |

40 | 314 |

45 | 353.2 |

50 | 392.5 |

56 | 439.6 |

63 | 494.5 |

70 | 549.5 |
