Weight of ms plate | unit weight of ms plate and in this topic we know about how to calculate the weight of ms plate and unit weight of ms plate.

and 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 tensil 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 unit weight calculation of mild steel plate and their different size and many more–

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 multistoreys building.

**Unit weight of ms plate**

Weight of 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. In this calculation we first derive weight of ms plate formula. Let us understand unit weight of ms plate.

Unit weight of ms plate of size **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.**

**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 their MS sheet Unit Weight is 47.1, 62.8, 78.5 and 98.1 kg/m2 respectively.

Unit Weight of ms plate calculated in kilogram per square metre (Kg/m2) or kilogram per foot (Kg/ft2). And **Ms plate weight calculation formula as follow:**

W = 7.85t

Where W = weight of ms plate in Kg/m2

t = thickness of ms plate

if t = 6 mm, than ms sheet weight calculation for 6 mm size as follow

MS sheet weight = 7.85 × 6 = 47.1 Kg/m2

if t = 8 mm, than ms sheet weight calculation for 8 mm size as follow

MS sheet weight = 7.85 × 8 = 62.8 Kg/m2

if t = 10 mm, than ms sheet weight calculation for 10 mm size as follow

MS sheet weight = 7.85 × 10 = 78.5 Kg/m2

if t = 12.5 mm, than ms sheet weight calculation for 12.5 mm size as follow

MS sheet weight = 7.85 × 12.5 = 98.1 Kg/m2

**MS ( mild steel ) plate density**

Density of MS plate is 7850 Kg/m3, this is Unit Weight of MS plate in SI unit, if we measure in cgs unit, ms plate density is 7.85 g/cm3. And 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.

**MS plate weight calculation formula**

MS plate weight calculated in Kilogram per square metre (Kg/m2) or kilogram per square foot ( Kg/ft2). And other unit is Imperial unit which is (lb/ft2).

◆ weight of ms plate formula in Kg/ft2 calculated as follows:

1 lbs = 0.454 Kg

Weight = 18.52 t

Where W = weight of ms plate in Kg/ft2

t = thickness of ms plate in inch

**Weight of ms plate formula Calculation and derive**

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

So we have weight of ms plate = Volume × density

Hence weight = Volume × density

Now we understand that is the weight of ms plate formula

Now calculate the weight calculation for ms plate

**How to calculate 6 mm ms plate weight**

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

Length 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 6 mm ms plate weight = volume ×density

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

weight calculation for ms plate 6mm = 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

Weight of 6 mm thick ms plate is 47.1Kg per sq meter and 4.376 kg per sq foot.

**How to calculate 8 mm thick ms plate weight**

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

Length 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

Weight of ms plate formula = volume ×density

weight of ms plate 8mm = 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

Weight of 8 mm thick ms plate is 62.8 Kg per sq meter and 5.834 kg per sq foot.

**How to calculate 10 mm ms plate weight per square meter**

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

Length 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

Weight of ms plate formula = volume ×density

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

10mm ms plate weight per square meter = 78.5 Kg/m2

**That is weight of ms plate 10mm per sq.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

Weight of 10 mm thick ms plate is 78.5 Kg per sq meter and 7.29 kg per sq foot.

**weight calculation of ms plate 12.5mm**

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

Length 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

Weight of 12.5 mm thick ms plate is 98.1 Kg per sq meter and 7.29 kg per sq foot.

**●Calculation:-**

the question is how to calculate weight of mild steel plate you know that mild steel plate have three dimension of Length breadth and thickness we should first take measurement of its dimension:-

**●Example1**:- how to calculate weight of MS plate with thickness 10mm

Given dimension of steel plate is following:-

Length L =1 m

Breadth B =1 m

Thickness t = 10 mm

Now convert all dimension in metre

L =1m

b = 1m

t =10mm=0.01m

**●Calculation**:-

**Weight=Volume×density**

Density of steel =7850 kg/m3

Weight = (l×b×t) ×7850 kg/m3

= (1×1×0.01) m3×7850 kg/m3

=0.01 m3×7850kg/m3

Weight =78.50 Kg Ans.

**●Example 2 :-** now take the second example having mild steel plate dimension is length 900mm, breadth 800 mm and thickness is 10 mm, now calculate the weight

**●Given dimension:-**

Length =900 mm =0.9m

Breadth =800 mm=0.8m

Thickness =10mm =10mm=0.01m

Density of steel =7850 kg/m3

Weight= Volume×density

● **calculation:-**

Weight =(l×b×t)×density

Weight =(0.9×0.08×0.01)m3×7850kg/m3

Weight =0.00072m3×7850kg/m3

Weight =50.652 Kg

Weight of mild steel bar=50.652kg Ans.

**Conclusion:**

The weight of 1mm ms plate is 7.85 kg/m². The weight of 2mm ms plate is 15.7 kg/m². 6mm ms plate = 47.1 kg/m2, 8mm ms plate = 62.8 kg/m2, 10mm ms plate = 78.5 kg/m2, 12.5mm ms plate = 98.1 kg/m2
