Formula and calculation methods

This calculator facilitates the computation of the linear meter mass for square tubes crafted from various materials, such as steel, stainless steel alloys, copper, and other metals. It leverages data sourced from established standards. In cases where square tube dimensions are not listed in these standards, the tool employs an online formula:

m=(ρ/7850)​×0.0157×t×(2A−2.86tL

Here, ρ represents the metal’s density in kg/m³, ranging from 7280 to 8080 for steel pipes and 8200 to 9020 for copper. The constant 7850 denotes the density of carbon steel in kg/m³. To compute the specific gravity of one running meter of a square metal tube (m), users must input the profile dimensions: section width A, wall thickness t, and pipe length L (set to 1m by default).
