Rod is known as steel bar and Reinforcement bar. Rod is also known as rebar and it is a short form of the reinforcement bar. Steel bar comes in different sizes and it sells according to weight. Many countries of the world follow their own different measurement, and gradation systems for rods. The United States and some European countries follow the imperial measurement system and the rest of the world follows the metric system. So In this article, we will discuss 12mm rod weight per foot, 12mm rod weight per meter, 12mm rod weight per piece, and 12mm rod weight per bundle.

Rod is used in reinforced concrete structures and load-bearing structures, Like beams, columns, foundations, Dams, bridges, etc. Rod gives more strength to the structure in which it is used. You can not imagine concrete structure construction without using rods.

The steel rod surface is deformed with ribs. The ribs of the rod prevent the slipping risk and it helps to get a better bond after tieing with steel wire. The steel rod is coated with epoxy resin which prevents the rod from rusting in a moist environment.

## 10mm rod weight per foot, per meter, per piece, and per bundle

Rod comes in different sizes like 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 20mm, 25mm, 32mm, etc. But the **length of the steel bar** is 12 meters or 40 feet. 12mm rod is generally used for the slabs, beam, columns and such-like load bearing structures. As I already tell you different countries have their own gradation and measurement system. So We will discuss 12mm steel bar weight per foot, per meter, per piece, and per bundle.

Generally, there are two formulas for calculating the rod weight.

- D
^{2}L/162. This formula is usable when rod length is given in meters. - D
^{2}L/533. This formula is usable when rod length is given in foot.

In the above two formula D represent the diameter of the rod and L represent the length of the rod.

### 12mm rod weight per foot

Diameter of the rod = 12

Length of the rod = 1 foot.

Therefore rod weight = D^{2}L/533

= (12)^{2} × 1/533

= 144/533 = 0.270 kg.

So, 12mm rod weight per foot is 0.270 kg.

### 12mm rod weight per meter

Diameter of the rod = 12

Length of the rod = 1 meter.

Therefore rod weight = D^{2}L/162

= (12)^{2} × 1/162

= 144/162 = 0.888 kg.

So, 12mm rod weight per meter is 0.888 kg.

### 12mm rod weight per piece

As I already tell you steel bar comes in 12 meters or 40 feet. So if you will take rod length in meters then you have to use (D^{2}L/162) this formula. But if you will take rod length in feet then you have to use (D^{2}L/533) this formula.

Here I will take rod length in meters. So 1 piece rod length is 12 meters.

Diameter of the rod = 12

Length of the rod = 12 meters.

Therefore rod weight = D^{2}L/162

= (12)^{2} × 12/162

= 1728/162 = 10.666 kg.

So, 12mm rod weight per piece is 10.666 kg.

### 12mm rod weight per bundle

To calculate the steel bar weight per bundle we have to know how many 12mm steel bar comes in a bundle. 5 rods come in a bundle. There are so many methods to calculate rod weight in 1 bundle. But we will use the easiest way.

We know the 1 piece 12 mm steel bar weight, and there are 5 pieces in 12mm steel bar bundle.

1 piece 10mm steel bar weight = 10.666 kg.

So, 1 bundle 12 mm rod weight = 1 piece bar weight × total number of rods in a bundle.

= 10.666 × 5

= 53.33 kg.

Therefore, 12mm rod weight per bundle is 53.33 kg.

#### Conclusion

In this article, we have discussed there is the weight of 12mm steel bar is 0.270 kg per foot, the weight of 12mm steel bar is 0.888 kg per meter, the weight of 12mm steel bar is 10.666 kg per piece, and the weight of 12mm steel bar per bundle is 53.33 kg.
