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?


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
