Enter the outside diameter, inside diameter, length of the tube, and density into the calculator to determine the weight of the tube.

## Weight of Tube Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the weight of a tube.

W = pi*(r2-r1)^2*h*d

- Where W is the weight of the tube
- r2 is the outside radius
- r1 is the inside radius
- h is the length
- d is the density (.285 lb/in^3 for steel)

## Weight of Tube Definition

A weight of a tube is typically used to describe the total weight of a steel pipe.

## Weight of Tube Example

how to calculate the weight of a tube?

**First, determine the outside radius.**Measure the outside radius of the tube.

**Next, determine the inside radius.**Measure the inside radius of the pipe.

**Next, determine the length.**Measure the length of the tube.

**Next, determine the density.**Calculate the density of the material the tube is made of.

**Finally, calculate the weight.**Calculate the weight of the tube using the equation above.
