Calculating Section weight of Mild steel angle
A mild steel angle of dimensions 35 mm x 35 mm x 5mm and is 20 feet long.
Can anybody detail me about the calculation of it's section weight? Kind regards Punto

Dimensions 3.5 cm x 3.5 cm x 0.5 cm, by 609.6 cm long Cross section area is 0.5 cm x (3.5 cm + 3.0 cm) = 3.25 cm² Volume is 3.25 cm² x 609.6 cm = 1981.2 cm² Mass is 7.9 g/cm³ x 1981.2 cm³ = 15651.5 g, or about 15.65 kg You could work in any length units, but that will determine your volume units, and you need density in those units. The above approach generalizes to any constant shape, but the area may be more complicated to figure.

Re: Calculating Section weight of Mild steel angle
Calculate the area of the crosssection, then multiply by length to get volume, then multiply by the density to get weight.
Different shape sections may be harder to calculate cross sectional area, but post #2 is a general guide.

For this typical cross section

Length 609.6 cm Volume 3438.14 cm³ Mild steel is about 7.85 g/cm³, so 26989 g or 26.989 kg I would just round to 27.0 kg.
