Enter the length (ft), the width (ft), and the thickness (in) into the Steel Plate Mass Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Steel Plate Mass.

## Steel Plate Mass Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Steel Plate Mass.

Msp  =SL * SW* T/12 * 490

• Where Msp is the Steel Plate Mass (lbs)
• SL is the length (ft)
• SW is the width (ft)
• T is the thickness (in)

## How to Calculate Steel Plate Mass?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Steel Plate Mass.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the length (ft).
• The length (ft) is calculated to be : 5.
2. Next, determine the width (ft).
• The width (ft) is measured to be: 6.
3. Next, determine the thickness (in).
• The thickness (in) is found to be: 3.
4. Finally, calculate the Steel Plate Mass using the formula above:

Msp  =SL * SW* T/12 * 490

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Msp  =5 *6* 3/12 * 490 = 3675 (lbs)

Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

length (ft) = 8

width (ft) = 6

thickness (in) = 2

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

Msp  =SL * SW* T/12 * 490 = (lbs)
