Calculating the Weight of Carbon Steel Plate: A Practical Guide


To calculate the weight of a carbon steel plate, follow these steps:

  1. Determine the dimensions: thickness, width, and length.
  2. Obtain the density of carbon steel, typically 0.284 pounds per cubic inch (imperial) or 7.85 tons per cubic meter (metric).
  3. Use the formula: Weight = Width * Length * Thickness * Density.

For example, for an A36 discrete, mill rolled plate: Width = 48 inches Length = 96 inches Thickness = 3/8 inches = 0.1875 inches Density = 0.284 lb/in³

Plugging these values into the formula: Weight = 48 * 96 * 0.1875 * 0.284 = 245 pounds.

It’s recommended to standardize units in calculations. Kloeckner Metals offers a carbon steel plate calculator for instant calculations.

Notes: The calculation tool was programmed with best care and attention. For all that BIT does not guarantee the correctness of the calculation result!

The tool is using this formula: Weight = L/1000 * W/1000 * T * S

  • L = Length in mm
  • W = Width in mm
  • T = Thickness in mm
  • S = Specific material density (Steel = 7.85)
