# Weight of ms plate | Unit weight of ms plate

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.

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 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

#### 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

The typical unit weight of 6 mm thick ms plate (mild steel sheet) is approximately 47.1 kg per square meter or approximately 4.376 kg per square feet.

### 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

The typical unit weight of 8 mm thick ms plate (mild steel sheet) is approximately 62.8 kg per square meter or approximately 5.834 kg per square feet.

### 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

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.

### 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

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.

#### ●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

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

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 typical unit weight for 1 mm ms plate (MS sheet) is about 7.85 kg/m², 2mm ms plate is about 15.7 kg/m², 6mm ms plate is about 47.1 kg/m2, 8mm ms plate is about 62.8 kg/m2, 10mm ms plate is about 78.5 kg/m2, and 12.5mm ms plate is about 98.1 kg/m2.
