## Unit weight of ms plate

Weight of ms plate comes in kilogram per square metre and per square feet that is known as unit weight of ms plate.like that unit weight of ms plate of 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12.5mm thickness is about 47.1 kg/m2, 62.8 Kg/m2, 78.5 Kg/m2 and 98.1 Kg/m2 respectively.

### Weight of ms plate formula

We know that weight of ms plate is multiplication of their volume and their density. We know that the density of steel is 7850 Kg/m3 so that is weight of ms plate formula

Weight = volume × density

So we have
weight of ms plate = Volume × density

Hence weight = Volume × density

ms plate density is 7850 Kg/m

Now we understand that is weight of ms plate formula

Now calculate weight of ms plate having different sizes

Q1) 6 mm ms plate weight

We have given thickness of ms plate = 6mm we convert in meter = 0.006 m

Lenght of ms plate = 1m

Width of ms plate = 1m

Area of ms plate = 1×1 m2 = 1 m2

Now volume = Area × thickness

Volume = 1m2 ×0.006 m = 0.006 m3

density of steel = 7850 Kg/m3

Now weight of ms plate 6mm = volume ×density

weight of ms plate 6mm = 0.006 m3×7850 Kg/m3

6 mm ms plate weight = 47.1 Kg/m2

That is 6mm ms plate weight per sq.meter

Now calculate weight of ms plate 6mm per sq.feet

We know that 1m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

So weight of ms plate 6mm per sq.feet is

= 47.1/10.764 = 4.376 Kg/ft2

Q2) 8 mm thick ms plate weight

We have given thickness of ms plate = 8mm we convert in meter = 0.008 m

Lenght of ms plate = 1m

Width of ms plate = 1m

Area of ms plate = 1×1 m2 = 1 m2

Now volume = Area × thickness

Volume = 1m2 ×0.008 m = 0.008 m3

density of steel = 7850 Kg/m3

8 mm thick ms plate weight = volume ×density

weight of 8 mm ms plate = 0.008 m3×7850 Kg/m3

8 mm thick ms plate weight = 62.8 Kg/m2

That is weight of ms plate 8mm per sq.meter

Now calculate weight of ms plate 8mm per sq.feet

We know that 1m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

So weight of ms plate 8mm per sq.feet is

= 62.8/10.764 = 5.834 Kg/ft2

Q3) 10 mm ms plate weight

We have given thickness of ms plate = 10mm we convert in meter = 0.010 m

Lenght of ms plate = 1m

Width of ms plate = 1m

Area of ms plate = 1×1 m2 = 1 m2

Now volume = Area × thickness

Volume = 1m2 ×0.010 m = 0.010 m3

density of steel = 7850 Kg/m3

Now 10 mm ms plate weight = volume ×density

weight of ms plate 10mm = 0.010 m3×7850 Kg/m3

weight of ms plate 10mm = 78.5 Kg/m2

That is 10 mm ms plate weight per square meter

Now calculate weight of ms plate 10mm per sq.feet

We know that 1m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

So weight of ms plate 10mm per sq.feet is

= 78.5/10.764 = 7.29 Kg/ft2

Q4) weight of ms plate 12.5mm

We have given thickness of ms plate = 12.5mm we convert in meter = 0.0125 m

Lenght of ms plate = 1m

Width of ms plate = 1m

Area of ms plate = 1×1 m2 = 1 m2

Now volume = Area × thickness

Volume = 1m2 ×0.0125 m = 0.0125 m3

density of steel = 7850 Kg/m3

Now weight of ms plate 12.5mm = volume ×density

weight of ms plate 12.5mm = 0.0125 m3×7850 Kg/m3

weight of ms plate 12.5mm = 98.1 Kg/m2

That is weight of ms plate 12.5mm per sq.meter

Now calculate weight of ms plate 12.5mm per sq.feet

We know that 1m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

So weight of ms plate 12.5mm per sq.feet is

= 98.1/10.764 = 9.113 Kg/ft2

5) 12 mm thick ms plate weight

We have given thickness of ms plate = 12 mm we convert in meter = 0.0120 m

Lenght of ms plate = 1m

Width of ms plate = 1m

Area of ms plate = 1×1 m2 = 1 m2

Now volume = Area × thickness

Volume = 1m2 ×0.0120 m = 0.0120 m3

density of steel = 7850 Kg/m3

Now 12 mm thick ms plate weight = volume ×density

weight of ms plate 12 mm = 0.0120 m3×7850 Kg/m3

12 mm thick ms plate weight = 94.2 Kg/m2

That is weight of ms plate 12.5mm per sq.meter

Now calculate weight of ms plate 12 mm per sq.feet

We know that 1m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

So weight of ms plate 12 mm per sq.feet is

= 94.2/10.764 = 8.75 Kg/ft2

6) 20 mm thick ms plate weight

We have given thickness of ms plate = 12 mm we convert in meter = 0.0120 m

Lenght of ms plate = 1m

Width of ms plate = 1m

Area of ms plate = 1×1 m2 = 1 m2

Now volume = Area × thickness

Volume = 1m2 ×0.0120 m = 0.0120 m3

density of steel = 7850 Kg/m3

Now 20 mm thick ms plate weight = volume ×density

weight of ms plate 20 mm = 0.0200 m3×7850 Kg/m3

20 mm thick ms plate weight = 157 Kg/m2

That is weight of ms plate 20mm per sq.meter

Now calculate weight of ms plate 20 mm per sq.feet

We know that 1m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

So weight of ms plate 20 mm per sq.feet is

= 157/10.764 = 14.585 Kg/ft2
