Metal Bar Weight Calculator
Metal bars weight of the rectangular and round shapes can be easily found, using the online metal bar weight calculator.
There are some basic instructions that should be followed by the user to successfully carry out the necessary calculations.
At the beginning, the user will be asked to set the name of the metal of alloy by choosing the right material from the dropdown menu at the top of the calculator.
One important thing is that in order for the calculator to be able to execute the required calculations, the user should know the shape, whether it is round or rectangular. It is important because the process for each if different.
For the round bar, the necessary dimensions are: the diameter and the length.
For the rectangular bar, the necessary dimensions are: the height, the width and the length.
The following algorithms makes part of the online Metal Bar Weight Calculator and can be applied to solve different problems:
Round Bar weight = Pi x r^2 x length x weight of metal per relevant cubic unit
where: Pi = 3.141592654 r = radius of bar
Rectangular Bar weight = width x height x length x weight of metal per relevant cubic unit
