Shape Weight Formulas

The following shape formulas can be used to calculate the nominal weights for various carbon steel shapes.  These weight calculations are based upon the theoretical weight of steel at 40.80 pounds per square foot per one inch of thickness.  These weight formulas are for nominal weights, (and are approximations), and should not be considered an exact weight.  All dimensions are to be in inches.
