(1)

The weight of MS plates is the multiplication of volume and density. The density of steel is 7850 Kg/m3.

Weight of MS Plate = Volume of MS Plate × Density of Steel

= Volume * 7850   kg

For Example:

When the length of the MS plate is 1m, the breadth is 1m, and also a thickness of 1m, then

Weight of MS Plate = Volume × density

=  1 x 7850

Weight of Ms Plate= 7850 Kg/m2

### 2. Calculation of MS Weight For Different Thickness

a. 6 mm MS Plate Weight

Given,

Thickness of MS plate = 6 mm = 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

Using the formula,

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

We know that 1 m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

So the weight of ms plate per sq. feet is

= 47.1/10.764

= 4.376 Kg/ft2

b. 8 mm thick MS Plate Weight

We have given thickness of MS plate = 8mm = 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

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

We know that 1m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

The weight of the MS plate per sq. foot is

= 62.8/10.764

= 5.834 Kg/ft2

c. 10 mm MS Plate Weight

We have given thickness of MS plate = 10mm = 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

Now,

10 mm MS plate weight = Volume × Density

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

weight of MS plate 10 mm = 78.5 Kg/m2

We know that,

1m2 = 10.764 sq. ft

The weight of MS plate per sq. feet is,

= 78.5/10.764

= 7.29 Kg/ft2

d. 12.5 MS Plate Weight

Given,

Thickness of MS plate = 12.5 mm = 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

We know that 1m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

So the weight of ms plate per sq. feet is

= 98.1/10.764

= 9.113 Kg/ft2

e. 12 mm Thick MS Plate Weight

Given,

Thickness of MS plate = 12 mm = 0.0120 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 ×0.0120 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

We know that,

1m2 = 10.764 sq. ft

The weight of the MS plate per sq. foot is

= 94.2/10.764

= 8.75 Kg/ft2

f. 20 mm thick MS plate weight

We have given thickness of MS plate = 12 mm = 0.0120 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 ×0.0120 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

We know that 1m2 = 10.764 sq.ft

The weight of the MS plate per sq. foot is

= 157/10.764

= 14.585 Kg/ft2
