## How to Calculate Weight and Painting Area of Steel 1

In this post we will learn how to calculate the weight of steel to determine the weighting, painting area. I also compiled based on the experiences of the authors in the field.

Let’s we discuss one by one….

Weight and Paint Area of Steel Plate

1. Weight Formula: Lenght x Width x Density x 1/1000
2. Paint Area Formula: ((Thikness of Steel Plate x (2 x L +(2 x W)) + 2 x (L x W)) x 1/1000000)

Where the constant value of the density is: 7.85 g/cm3 or 0.00785 Kg/m

Notes:
Weight with unit Kg, Lenght (L) with unit mm, Width with unit mm, Thikness Steel Plate with unit mm and Paint area in m2.

Example:

Steel Plate with thikness 8mm, lenght 4500mm and width 2500mm. Please calculate the weight and painting are.

Weight: L x W x Density x 1/1000

: 4500mm x 2500mm x 0.00785 x 1/1000

: 706.5 Kg

Paint Areanya : ((Plate Thikness x (2 x L +(2 x W)) + 2 x (L x W)) x 1/1000000)

: ((8x(2×4500+(2×2500))+2x(4500×2500))x1/1000000)

: 22.61 m2
