The weight of a MS (mild steel) plate per square meter can vary depending on density of ms and its thickness. In general, the unit weight of ms plate is typically about 7.85 kilograms per square meter (kg/m²) for 1 mm thick plate.

The density of MS plate is typically about 7850 kilogram per cubic meter (kg/m3), or 7.85 gram per cubic centimeter (g/cm3). When the alloy is added to fabricated specification then it will range from 7.75 g/cm3 to 8.05 g/cm3 which is equal to 0.280 to 0.291 lbs/inch3.

Mild steel plates have various applications, used in construction, manufacturing of car bodies, chassis, and components, shipbuilding, machinery and equipment, containers and tanks, railway infrastructure, agricultural equipment, construction of household appliances, general fabrication, and structural components.

The thickness of a mild steel (MS) plate can vary widely depending on its intended use. Common thicknesses range from 1.6 mm to 25 mm or like 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, 3 mm, 18 mm and 20 mm thick and common length and width are 2.4m to 1.2m (8 ft × 4 ft).

If a ms plate is 1m in length, 1m in width and 1 mm thick, to determine its weight in kg per sqm, multiply the volume of ms plate (1m × 1m × 0.001m = 0.001 m3) by 7850 kg/m3, such as weight of ms plate per sqm for 1 mm thick = 0.001m3 × 7,850 kg/m3 = 7.85 kg/m².

To figure the weight of ms plate per square meter of different thickness, use the formula W = 7.85 × t, where t is thickness, W is weight of ms plate and the numerical figure 7.85 is their unit weight in kg/m² for 1 mm thick.

**As a general guideline, you can use the following approximate values:**

- For a 1 mm thick MS plate: Around 7.85 kg/m²
- For a 2 mm thick MS plate: Around 15.7 kg/m²
- For a 3 mm thick MS plate: Around 23.55 kg/m²
- For a 5 mm thick MS plate: Around 39.25 kg/m²
- For an 8 mm thick MS plate: Around 62.8 kg/m²
- For a 10 mm thick MS plate: Around 78.5 kg/m²
- For a 12 mm thick MS plate: Around 94.5 kg/m²
- For a 16 mm thick MS plate: Around 125.6 kg/m²
- For a 18 mm thick MS plate: Around 141.3 kg/m²
- For a 20 mm thick MS plate: Around 157 kg/m²
- For a 25 mm thick MS plate: Around 196.25 kg/m²
