# 16 mm thick ms plate unit weight and standard size

The unit weight of a 16 mm thick mild steel plate is approximately 125.6 kilograms per square meter or 11.67 kilograms per foot. Standard sizes for MS plates vary, but a common size is 4 feet by 8 feet (1.22 meters by 2.44 meters).

16 mm thick ms plate unit weight and standard size, hi guys in this topic we know about how to calculate unit weight of 16 mm thick ms plate, 16 mm MS plate standard size and their unit weight.

mild steel is best Steel which containing low quantity of carbon about 0. 05-0.2 5%, it’s make more malleable and ductile, it has generally low tensile strength but it is cheap and easy to form, due to low carbon contain it is also called” low Carbon Steel”, it has high amount of iron and ferrite that’s why it is more megnetic.

In this article we discuss about 16 mm thick MS plate weight and their standard size. Full form of MS is mild steel plate, their different size are available in market according to requirement.

Mild steel moulded to form various materials like screw, nuts, bolts, Steel plates and many more in various shape and size due to more malleability and ductility.

Mild steel plate can be used in field of civil construction, building construction and designing, it can be used in building industry construction of multistorey building.

## 16 mm thick ms plate unit weight

Weight of 16 mm ms plate calculation in kilogram per square feet (kg/ft2) and kilogram per square metre (Kg/m2) and we know that ms plate having different sizes like 6mm, 8mm,10mm,12.5mm and 16 mm. In this calculation we first derive weight of ms plate formula. Let us understand unit weight of ms plate.

The typical unit weight of 6 mm thick ms plate (mild steel sheet) is approximately 47.1 kg per square meter or approximately 4.38 kg per square feet.

The typical unit weight of 8 mm thick ms plate (mild steel sheet) is approximately 62.8 kg per square meter or approximately 5.83 kg per square feet.

The typical unit weight of 10 mm thick ms plate (mild steel sheet) is approximately 78.5 kg per square meter or approximately 7.29 kg per square feet.

The typical unit weight of 12.5 mm thick ms plate (mild steel sheet) is approximately 98.1 kg per square meter or approximately 9.1 kg per square feet.

The typical unit weight of 16 mm thick ms plate (mild steel sheet) is approximately 125.6 kg per square meter or approximately 11.67 kg per square feet.

Unit weight of ms plate of size 6mm, 8mm,10mm,12.5mm and 16 mm thick is about 47.1 kg/m2, 62.8 Kg/m2, 78.5 Kg/m2 , 98.1 Kg/m2 and 125.6 kg/m2 respectively.

MS ( mild steel) sheet weight calculation
It is low carbon containing Steel, MS sheet comes in various size having different thickness like 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12.5 mm and 16 mm their MS sheet Unit Weight is 47.1, 62.8, 78.5 ,98.1 kg/m2 and 125.6 kg/m2 respectively.

16 mm thick ms plate weight is calculated in kilogram per square metre (Kg/m2) or kilogram per foot (Kg/ft2). And 16 mm MS plate weight calculation formula as follow:

W = 7.85t

Where W = weight of 16 mm ms plate in Kg/m2

t = thickness of ms plate = 16 mm

if t = 16 mm,
than 16 mm ms plate weight as follow

16 mm ms plate weight = 7.85 × 16 = 125.6 Kg/m2

125.6 kg/m2 is unit weight of 16 mm ms plate

1 m2 = 10.76 sq ft

16 mm thick ms plate unit weight in Kg/ft2

= 125.6/10.76 = 11.67 Kg/ft2

The typical unit weight of 16 mm thick ms plate (mild steel sheet) is approximately 125.6 kg per square meter or approximately 11.67 kg per sq ft (square foot).

### 16 mm ms plate standard size & weight

16 mm MS plate standard size available in market are 2500 mm × 1200 mm × 16 mm

Length of ms plate = 2500 mm

Width of ms plate = 1200 mm

Depth of ms plate = 16 mm

For calculation of weight of 16mm ms plate which should convert all these measurement into metre

Length = 2.5 meter

Width = 1.2 meter

Depth = 0.016 meter

Volume of ms plate = 2.5 × 1.2 × 0.016 = 0.048 m3

Volume of ms plate = 0.048 m3

Density of ms plate = 7850 Kg/m3

16 mm thick ms plate weight = volume × density

Weight = 0.048 m3 × 7850 kg/m3 = 376.8 kg

The typical weight of 16mm thick ms plate measuring 2500 mm × 1200 mm × 16 mm) is 376.8 kg per square meter.
