Convert linear feet to tons
How do I convert 1/2" and 3/8" rebar in linear feet to tons?

Re: Convert linear feet to tons
That depends on the density of the metal. Cast steel is about 490 pounds/cubic foot.
Calculate the cross sectional area of the rebar, then multiply by the length to get volume. A 1/2 inch diameter circle has a cross sectional area of 0.19634954084936207 square inches. Lets round it to 0.2 square inches, now the formula for calculating weight would be: (((0.2 / 144) * linear feet) * 490) / 2000 = tons What I did was first convert square inches to square feet: 0.2 / 144 = square feet Then calculated cubic feet: square feet * linear feet = cubic feet Now figured the pounds: cubic feet * density = pounds Now the tons: pounds / 2000 = tons That is for the 1/2 inch diameter cast steel rebar. Now do the same for the 3/8, or 5/8, or 7/16, etc.
