Hello friends, today we will discuss rod weight per meter in this article. Actually, the rod comes in different sizes, so the weight of all different sizes of the rod is different.

The rod is known by different names in all the countries around the world. For example, in some countries of the world, the rod is known by the names of rebar, steel bar, reinforcement bar, etc. Generally, reinforcement bar is called rod only in India.

Rods are generally used to increase the strength of concrete in concrete structures. When the rod is used along with concrete in a concrete structure, its strength increases manifold.

The rod is made of carbon steel and ribs are raised on the surface of the rod to avoid slipping. The rod is coated with epoxy resin to prevent rust.

As we all know, different countries of the world have their own gradation system to measure rods. Rod is measured by the metric system in most countries of the world. But in the United States, the Imperial system is used to measure rod weight.

## Rod Weight per meter: 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 18mm, 20mm, 25mm, 32mm, and 40mm

Normally the weight of the rod is calculated in kg per meter and kg per foot. But here we are going to calculate rod weight in kg per meter. There is a formula to find the rod weight in kg per meter which is D^{2}L/162. In which D denotes the diameter of the rod and L denotes the given length.

### 6mm Rod Weight

**6 mm rod weight per meter**

The length of 6 mm rod = 1 meter

Diameter of the given rod = 6 mm.

So, the Weight of 6 mm rod = D^{2}L/162

= (6^{2}) × 1m/162.

= 36/162 = 0.222 kg/m.

**6 mm Rod weight per piece**

We know the length of a full-size rod is 12 meters.

So, the weight of 6mm rod per piece = D^{2}L/162.

= (6^{2}) × 12/162.

= 36 × 0.074.

= 2.664 kg/piece.

So, The weight of the 6mm rod per piece is 2.664 kg.

### 8mm Rod Weight

**8 mm rod weight per meter**

The length of 8 mm rod = 1 meter

Diameter of the given rod = 8 mm.

So, the Weight of 8 mm rod = D^{2}L/162

= (8^{2}) × 1m/162.

= 64/162 = 0.395 kg/m.

**8 mm Rod weight per piece**

We know the length of a full-size rod is 12 meters.

So, the weight of 8mm rod per piece = D^{2}L/162.

= (8^{2}) × 12/162.

= 64 × 0.074.

= 4.736 kg/piece.

So, The weight of the 8mm rod per piece is 4.736 kg.

### 10mm Rod Weight

**10 mm rod weight per meter**

The length of 10 mm rod = 1 meter

Diameter of the given rod = 10 mm.

So, the Weight of 10 mm rod = D^{2}L/162

= (10^{2}) × 1m/162.

= 100/162 = 0.617 kg/m.

**10 mm Rod weight per piece**

We know the length of a full-size rod is 12 meters.

So, the weight of 10mm rod per piece = D^{2}L/162.

= (10^{2}) × 12/162.

= 100 × 0.074.

= 7.4 kg/piece.

So, The weight of the 10mm rod per piece is 7.4 kg.

### 12mm Rod Weight

**12 mm rod weight per meter**

The length of 12 mm rod = 1 meter

Diameter of the given rod = 12 mm.

So, the Weight of 12 mm rod = D^{2}L/162

= (12^{2}) × 1m/162.

= 144/162 = 0.888 kg/m.

**12 mm Rod weight per piece**

We know the length of a full-size rod is 12 meters.

So, the weight of 12mm rod per piece = D^{2}L/162.

= (12^{2}) × 12/162.

= 144 × 0.074.

= 10.656 kg/piece.

So, The weight of the 12mm rod per piece is 10.656 kg.

### 16mm Rod Weight

**16 mm rod weight per meter**

The length of 16 mm rod = 1 meter

Diameter of the given rod = 16 mm.

So, the Weight of 16 mm rod = D^{2}L/162

= (16^{2}) × 1m/162.

= 256/162 = 1.580 kg/m.

**16 mm Rod weight per piece**

We know the length of a full-size rod is 12 meters.

So, the weight of 16mm rod per piece = D^{2}L/162.

= (16^{2}) × 12/162.

= 256 × 0.074.

= 18.944 kg/piece.

So, The weight of the 16mm rod per piece is 18.944 kg.

### 18mm Rod Weight

**18 mm rod weight per meter**

The length of 18 mm rod = 1 meter

Diameter of the given rod = 18 mm.

So, the Weight of 18 mm rod = D^{2}L/162

= (18^{2}) × 1m/162.

= 324/162 = 2 kg/m.

**18 mm Rod weight per piece**

We know the length of a full-size rod is 12 meters.

So, the weight of 18mm rod per piece = D^{2}L/162.
