# Weight of MS plate and their unit weight

Ms plate is also known as ms sheets or mild steel plate. Ms plate is made of steel or iron. It comes in various sizes, types, thicknesses, lengths, radius, dimensions, etc. MS plate used in various construction work. This comes flexible but can’t be broken easily. This is used to provide strength to the concrete. Ms plate is also used in the area of automobiles, nuclear and thermal power plants, etc. Different thickness of ms plate has weight so we will discuss the weight of MS plate and their unit weight.

The thickness of the ms plate can be from 5mm to 150mm. The width can be 1000mm to 4500 mm. Length can be 3000 mm to 18000 mm. It is very durable and it can be costly.

## How to calculate the weight of MS plate

If you want to calculate the weight of the ms plate then there are some points that you should already know. which are as follows.

• The volume of the ms plate.
• Density weight of the ms plate.

### How to calculate the weight of 10 mm ms plate?

Here I want to tell you that the density of any ms plate is determined as 7850 kg/m3.

Now you need to find the volume. So what is the formula for finding the volume of ms steel?

Volume = l × w × t ( in which l is length, w is width and t is thickness )

Now we are going to find the weight of a 10 mm ms plate. Which length is 1 m and width is also 1 m and thickness of 10 mm.

Now according to the formula,

Volume of ms plate = 1 × 1 × 0.01 = 0.01 m3.

You were thinking why I have written 0.01 actually the length and width given in the meter. So I have changed the thickness value (10mm) which is given in millimeters into the meter. So don’t confuse.

Now we have to find the weight of 10 mm ms plate.

Put an image of 1 × 1 with 10 mm thickness of ms plate.

Weight of ms plate = density × volume

Weight of ms plate = 7850 × 0.01 = 78.5 kg.

Hence we get that the weight of 10 mm mild steel plate of 78.5 kg.

Just like this next, we shall calculate the weight of different ms plates with different thicknesses.

### How to calculate the weight of 12 mm ms plate?

Volume of ms plate  = 1 × 1 × 0.012= 0.012 m3.

Now we have to find the weight of 12 mm ms plate.

Weight of ms plate = density × volume

Weight of ms plate =  7850 × 0.012 = 94.2 kg

Hence we get that the weight of 12 mm mild steel plate of 94.2 kg.

### How to calculate the weight of 16 mm ms plate?

Volume of ms plate  = 1 × 1 × 0.016 = 0.016 m3.

Now we have to find the weight of 16 mm ms plate.

Weight of ms plate = density × volume

Weight of ms plate =  7850 × 0.016 = 125.6 kg

Hence we get that the weight of 16 mm mild steel plate of 125.6 kg.

### How to calculate the weight of 20 mm ms plate?

Volume of ms plate  = 1 × 1 × 0.02 = 0.02 m3.

Now we have to find the weight of 20 mm ms plate.

Weight of ms plate = density × volume

Weight of ms plate =  7850 × 0.02 = 157 kg

Hence we get that the weight of 20 mm mild steel plate of 157 kg.

### How to calculate the weight of 60 mm ms plate?

Volume of ms plate  = 1 × 1 × 0.06 = 0.06 m3 .

Now we have to find the weight of 60 mm ms plate.

Weight of ms plate = density × volume

Weight of ms plate =  7850 × 0.06 = 471 kg

Hence we get that the weight of 60 mm mild steel plate of 471 kg.
