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.
Steel density typically ranges from .280-.291 lb/in^3 depending on the exact composition.
