Select the shape of the Aluminum and enter the required variables. The calculator will evaluate and display the Aluminum weight. 

Aluminum Weight Formulas

The following formulas are used to calculate the weight of Aluminum in different shapes.

Aluminum Flat Sheet Weight Formula = L * W * H * d

Aluminum Round Bar Weight Formula = pi * D^2/4 * L * d

Aluminum Square Hollow Tube Weight Formula = [W^2-(W-T)^2] * L * d

Aluminum Round Hollow Tube Weight Formula = pi * (R^2-r^2) * L * d

Aluminum Square Angle Weight Formula = [W^2-(W-T)^2]/2 * L * d

Aluminum T bar Weight Formula = (W*T – (H-T)*T)* L * d

Aluminum C Channel Weight Formula = (2*W*T1+H*T2)* L * d

Variables used in these equations: 

  • L is the length
  • W is the width
  • H is the height
  • d is the density
  • D is the outer diameter
  • T is the thickness
  • R is the outer radius
  • r is the inner radius
  • T1 is the channel thickness along the width
  • T2 is the channel thickness along the height

The units used in all calculations on the calculator are inches for lengths and lbs/in^3 for density. These can be switched for any equivalent unit as long as the density units are also changed to match. For example, if you change the lengths to feet, the density should be in lbs/ft^3 or mass/ft^3.

What is the density of Aluminum?

The average density of Aluminum is 0.098 lbs/in^3.
