Formula to Calculate the Weight of Steel Plate

Fortunately, calculating the weight of a steel plate is not a complex process. It only requires simple multiplication.

Width (inches) * Length (inches) * Thickness (inches) * Density (lb/in3) = Weight

So, for example a 4ft x 8ft x 3/16in plate of steel would be calculated in inches as: 48 * 96 * .1875 * 0.282 = 250 lb.

.282 is the density of A36 steel plate, but you can of course substitute the density of other metals if you need the weight of a different material.
