Enter the diameter and length of the PTFE rod into the calculator to determine the PTFE rod weight.

## PTFE Rod Weight Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the PTFE Rod Weight.

PTFE-W = pi*D^2/4*L * d

• Where PTFE-W is the weight of the rod (lbs)
• D is the diameter of the rod (in)
• L is the length of the rod (in)
• d is the density of ptfe (lbs/in^3)
• This is known to be .079478 lbs/in^3

To calculate the weight of a PTFE rod, first, calculate the volume of the rod, then multiply the volume by a density of .079478 pounds per cubic inch.

## What is a PTFE Rod Weight?

Definition:

The weight of a PTFE rod will depend on the diameter and length of the rod.

## How to Calculate PTFE Rod Weight?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate PTFE Rod Weight.

First, determine the diameter of the rod. In this example, the diameter is found to be 5 inches.

Next, determine the length of the rod. This is measured to be 36 inches.

Finally, calculate the length of the rod using the formula above:

PTFE-W = pi*D^2/4*L * d

PTFE-W = 3.14159*5^2/4*36 * .07948

PTFE-W = 56.181 lbs
