Here is a list of mild steel bars weight.
Diameter of bars in millimeter
Weight of bars in kilogram
|6 mm||0.22 kg/meter|
|10 mm||0.62 kg/meter|
|12 mm||0.89 kg/meter|
|16 mm||1.58 kg/meter|
|20 mm||2.469 kg/meter|
|25 mm||3.858 kg/meter|
Weight of steel bars formula
To calculate weight of steel bars, there is a formula used to calculate weight.
W=(D^2 x L)/162
In the above formula:
- D is in millimeter.
- L is the total length of steel bars of which weight is to be calculated.
For example: if we have to calculate the weight of 10 mm steel bars, then we will proceed as follow:
In this way we will get steel bars weight per meter. After that multiply unit weight with the total length of steel bars of which weight is to be calculated.
Weight of steel bars per foot in kg
Diameter of bars
Weight of bars
|#2 bars (diameter 2/8 inch)||0.075 kg/ft|
|#3 bars (diameter 3/8 inch)||0.170 kg/ft|
|#4 bars (diameter ½ inch)||0.30 kg/ft|
|#5 bars (diameter 5/8 inch)||0.473 kg/ft|
|#6 bars (diameter 6/8 inch)||0.68 kg/ft|
|#8 bars (diameter 1 inch)||1.21 kg/ft|

is no difference in weight between mild steel and high tensile steel?

Please is this formula for calculating the weight of a steel bar in kg/m
W=(D^2 x L)/162
