Guys In this article we are going to discuss rod weight per piece:8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 20mm and 25mm. Hence rod comes in different sizes so every size rod weight is different. Therefore we will discuss **8mm rod weight** per piece, **10mm rod weight** per piece, **12mm rod weight** per piece, **16mm rod weight** per piece, **20mm rod weight** per piece, **25mm rod weight** per piece, **32mm rod weight** per piece, and **40mm rod weight** per piece.

Rod is also known by the name of steel bar and rebar. Rebar is the short form of the Reinforcement bar. Generally, rods are used in concrete structures like footing, columns, beams, slabs, etc to increase the strength of that structure.

Many countries in the world has their own graduation and measurement systems for steel bars. Like the United state follows the imperial measurement system, Europe and most country follow the metric measurement system for measurements of steel bar weight.

## Rod weight per piece size 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 20mm, and 25mm

Generally, there are two formulas for calculating the **weight of steel bars** per piece.

- D
^{2}L/162 (Using this formula you can calculate rod weight when the steel bar length is given in meters) - D
^{2}L/533 (Using this formula you can calculate the weight of the rod when the rebar length is given in feet.)

In the above formula, D represents the diameter of the steel bar, L represents the length of the rod, and the numerical number is a derived number. Using the above two formulas you can calculate rod weight per piece by many methods. But I will tell you the easiest method.

### 8mm rod weight per piece

The 8mm rod weight is 4.74 kg per piece and the 8mm rod weight per foot is 0.120 kg. 8mm rod weight per meter is 0.395 kg.

As we know steel bars come in length of 12 meters or 40 feet.

Here given length of the 8mm rod is 12 meters.

Therefore, 8mm rod weight per piece = D^{2}L/162

= (8^{2}) × 12 / 162

= 768 ÷162 = 4.74 kg.

So, The 8mm rod weight per piece is 4.74 kg.

### 10mm rod weight per piece

The 10mm rod weight is 7.407 kg per piece and the 10mm rod weight per foot is 0.187 kg. 10mm rod weight per meter is 0.617 kg.

As we know steel bars come in length of 12 meters or 40 feet.

Here given length of 10mm rod is 12 meters.

Therefore, 10mm rod weight per piece = D^{2}L/162

= (10^{2}) × 12 / 162

= 1200 ÷162 = 7.407 kg.

So, The 10mm rod weight per piece is 7.407 kg.

### 12mm rod weight per piece

As we know steel bars come in length of 12 meters or 40 feet.

Here given a length of 12mm rod is 12 meters.

Therefore, 12mm rod weight per piece = D^{2}L/162

= (12^{2}) × 12 / 162

= 1728 ÷162 = 10.666 kg.

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

### 16mm rod weight per piece

As we know that steel bars come in a length of 12 meters or 40 feet.

Here given a length of 16mm rod is 12 meters.

Therefore, 16mm rod weight per piece = D^{2}L/162

= (16^{2}) × 12 / 162

= 3072 ÷162 = 18.962 kg.

So, The 16mm rod weight per piece is 18.962 kg.

### 20mm rod weight per piece

As we know that steel bars come in length of 12 meters or 40 feet.

Here given a length of 20mm rod is 12 meters.

Therefore, 20mm rod weight per piece = D^{2}L/162

= (20^{2}) × 12 / 162

= 4800 ÷162 = 29.629 kg.

So, The 20mm rod weight per piece is 29.629 kg.

### 25mm rod weight per piece

As we know that steel bars come in length of 12 meters or 40 feet.

Here given a length of 25mm rod is 12 meters.

Therefore, 25mm rod weight per piece = D^{2}L/162

= (25^{2}) × 12 / 162

= 7500 ÷162 = 46.296 kg.

So, The 25mm rod weight per piece is 46.296 kg.

### 32mm rod weight per piece

As we know that steel bars come in length of 12 meters or 40 feet.

Here given a length of 32mm rod is 12 meters.

Therefore, 32mm rod weight per piece = D^{2}L/162

= (32^{2}) × 12 / 162

= 12288 ÷162 = 75.851 kg.

So, The 32mm rod weight per piece is 75.851 kg.

### 40mm rod weight per piece

As we know that steel bars come in length of 12 meters or 40 feet.

Here given a length of 20mm rod is 12 meters.

Therefore, 40mm rod weight per piece = D^{2}L/162

= (40^{2}) × 12 / 162

= 19200 ÷162 = 118.518 kg.

So, The 40mm rod weight per piece is 118.518 kg.
