In this article, we are going to discuss topics related to MS plates, such as the unit weight of MS plate. How to calculate MS plate weight etc.

The kind of steel in which the amount of carbon is up to 5% is considered the best because it is light in weight. Generally, low-carbon steels are more ductile and have lower tensile strength. Low-carbon steel is easy to make and it is cheaper than high-carbon steel. The amount of ferrite and iron in low-carbon steel is high due to which it has more magnetizing power.

## What is MS plate / Sheets and What are the uses of MS plate

**What is MS plate/MS sheet**

The full form of MS plate is Mild Steel plate. Mild steel plate is generally called such steel plate, in which the amount of carbon is very less. Mild steel plate is one of many steel plates, and contains a very small amount of carbon, due to which it is light in weight and very strong.

**What are the uses of MS plate?**

MS plate is used to make many types of products such as nuts, bolts, screws, and other such items which require high ductility material to make. Because the MS plate is of the same nature. MS plate is used in multi-storey buildings, building construction, etc.

### Unit Weight of MS Plate

MS sheets come in different sizes like 6mm, 8mm, and 10mm, etc but the unit weight of all the sizes of mus plate is the same. Usually, the weight of the MS plate is calculated in kilograms per meter square and kilogram per square foot.

The unit weight of a 6mm thick MS plate is 47.1 Kg/m^{2}.

The unit weight of an 8mm thick Ms plate is 62.8 Kg/m^{2}.

A 10mm thick Ms plate unit weight is 78.5 Kg/m^{2}.

12.5mm thick Ms plate unit weight is 98.1 Kg/m^{2}.

### How to calculate MS plate/ sheet Weight

As we know that the MS plate comes in different sizes and the weight of the MS plate is calculated on the basis of the size (thickness) of the MS plate.

Since the MS plate comes in different sizes. The weight of the MS plate is calculated by the density of the MS plate. The density of MS plate in CGS is 7.8 g/cm^{3} if it is converted into kg then the density of the MS plate in kg is 7.85 kg/m^{3}.

**Formula for unit weight of MS plate**

MS plate weight calculation formula = Density of MS plate ^{ }× Thickness.

if the thickness of the sheets is in cm then the density of the ms plate should be in cm and if the thickness of the MS plate is in mm then the density of the MS plate will be in kg.

**Unit weight of 6mm MS plate**

density of MS plate is = 7.85 kg/m^{3}.

The thickness of MS plate is = 6mm.

Then Unit weight of 6mm MS pate = Density of MS plate × Thickness

= 7.85 × 6 = 47.1 kg/m^{2}.

**Unit weight of 8mm MS plate**

density of MS plate is = 7.85 kg/m^{3}.

The thickness of MS plate is = 8mm.

Then Unit weight of 6mm MS pate = Density of MS plate × Thickness

= 7.85 × 8 = 62.8 kg/m^{2}.

**Unit weight of 10mm MS plate**

density of MS plate is = 7.85 kg/m^{3}.

The thickness of MS plate is = 10mm.

Then Unit weight of 6mm MS pate = Density of MS plate × Thickness

= 7.85 × 10 = 78.5 kg/m^{2}.

**Unit weight of 12.5mm MS plate**

density of MS plate is = 7.85 kg/m^{3}.

The thickness of MS plate is = 12.5mm.

Then Unit weight of 6mm MS pate = Density of MS plate × Thickness

= 7.85 × 12.5 = 98.125 kg/m^{2}.

### MS plate Weight formula

We all know that the density of steel is 7850 kg/m^{3}. And to calculate the weight of the MS plate, the density of steel has to be multiplied by the MS plate volume.

So, the weight of MS plate = volume of ms plate × Density of steel.

Now you can calculate the weight of MS plate of any size with this formula.

### How to calculate weight of 6 mm MS plate

**Weight of 6mm MS plate per square meter**

The density of steel is 7850 kg/m^{3}.

And, We know the thickness of Ms plate is 6mm. But we have to convert the thickness from millimeters to meters.

6mm = 6 ÷ 1000 = 0.006.

length of MS plate is 1 meter and the width of the MS plate is 1 meter.

So, the area of MS plate = length × width.

= 1 × 1 = 1m^{2}.

So, the volume of 6 mm MS plate = Area × Thickness

= 1m^{2} × 0.006 = 0.006 m^{3}.

Now, the weight of 6 mm MS plate = volume × Density of steel.

= 0.006 m^{3} × 7850 kg/m^{3}.

= 47.1 kg/m^{2}.

Therefore, the Weight of 6mm MS plate is 47.1 kg/m^{2}.

**Weight of 6 mm MS plate per sq ft**

we know that in 1 sq meter there are 10.764 sq ft.

So, the weight of 6 mm MS plate per sq ft = MS plate weight ÷ 10.764.

= 47.1 ÷ 10.764

= 4.375 kg/ft^{2}.

The weight of 6 mm MS plate per sq ft is 4.375 kg/ft^{2}.

### How to calculate weight of 8 mm MS plate

**Weight of 8mm MS plate per square meter**

The density of steel is 7850 kg/m^{3}.

And, We know the thickness of Ms plate is 8 mm. But we have to convert the thickness from millimeters to meters.

8 mm = 8 ÷ 1000 = 0.008.

length of MS plate is 1 meter and the width of the MS plate is 1 meter.

So, the area of MS plate = length × width.

= 1 × 1 = 1m^{2}.

So, the volume of 8 mm MS plate = Area × Thickness

= 1m^{2} × 0.008 = 0.008 m^{3}.

Now, the weight of 8 mm MS plate = volume × Density of steel.

= 0.008 m^{3} × 7850 kg/m^{3}.

= 65.8 kg/m^{2}.

Therefore, the Weight of 8 mm MS plate is 62.8 kg/m^{2}.

**Weight of 8 mm MS plate per sq ft**

we know that in 1 sq meter there are 10.764 sq ft.

So, the weight of 8 mm MS plate per sq ft = MS plate weight ÷ 10.764.

= 62.8 ÷ 10.764

= 5.834 kg/ft^{2}.

The weight of 8 mm MS plate per sq ft is 5.834 kg/ft^{2}.

### How to calculate weight of 10 mm MS plate

**Weight of 10mm MS plate per square meter**

The density of steel is 7850 kg/m^{3}.

And, We know the thickness of Ms plate is 10mm. But we have to convert the thickness from millimeters to meters.

10mm = 10 ÷ 1000 = 0.010.

length of MS plate is 1 meter and the width of the MS plate is 1 meter.

So, the area of MS plate = length × width.

= 1 × 1 = 1m^{2}.

So, the volume of 10 mm MS plate = Area × Thickness

= 1m^{2} × 0.010 = 0.010 m^{3}.

Now, the weight of 10 mm MS plate = volume × Density of steel.

= 0.010 m^{3} × 7850 kg/m^{3}.

= 78.5 kg/m^{2}.

Therefore, the Weight of 10mm MS plate is 78.5 kg/m^{2}.

**Weight of 10 mm MS plate per sq ft**

we know that in 1 sq meter there are 10.764 sq ft.

So, the weight of 10 mm MS plate per sq ft = MS plate weight ÷ 10.764.

= 78.5 ÷ 10.764

= 7.292 kg/ft^{2}.

The weight of 10 mm MS plate per sq ft is 7.292 kg/ft^{2}.

### How to calculate weight of 12.5 mm MS plate

**Weight of 12.5 mm MS plate per square meter**

The density of steel is 7850 kg/m^{3}.

And, We know the thickness of Ms plate is 12.5 mm. But we have to convert the thickness from millimeters to meters.

12.5 mm = 12.5 ÷ 1000 = 0.0.0125.

length of MS plate is 1 meter and the width of the MS plate is 1 meter.

So, the area of MS plate = length × width.

= 1 × 1 = 1m^{2}.

So, the volume of 12.5 mm MS plate = Area × Thickness

= 1m^{2} × 0.0125 = 0.0125 m^{3}.

Now, the weight of 12.5 mm MS plate = volume × Density of steel.

= 0.0125 m^{3} × 7850 kg/m^{3}.

= 98.1 kg/m^{2}.

Therefore, the Weight of 12.5 mm MS plate is 98.1 kg/m^{2}.

**Weight of 12.5 mm MS plate per sq ft**

we know that in 1 sq meter there are 10.764 sq ft.

So, the weight of 12.5 mm MS plate per sq ft = MS plate weight ÷ 10.764.

= 98.1 ÷ 10.764

= 9.11 kg/ft^{2}.

The weight of 12.5mm MS plate per sq ft is 9.11 kg/ft^{2}.

### How to calculate weight of 15 mm MS plate

**Weight of 15mm MS plate per square meter**

The density of steel is 7850 kg/m^{3}.

And, We know the thickness of Ms plate is 15 mm. But we have to convert the thickness from millimeters to meters.

15mm = 15 ÷ 1000 = 0.015.

length of MS plate is 1 meter and the width of the MS plate is 1 meter.

So, the area of MS plate = length × width.

= 1 × 1 = 1m^{2}.

So, the volume of 15 mm MS plate = Area × Thickness

= 1m^{2} × 0.015 = 0.015 m^{3}.

Now, the weight of 15 mm MS plate = volume × Density of steel.

= 0.015 m^{3} × 7850 kg/m^{3}.

= 117.75 kg/m^{2}.

Therefore, the Weight of 15 mm MS plate is 117.75 kg/m^{2}.

**Weight of 15 mm MS plate per sq ft**

we know that in 1 sq meter there are 10.764 sq ft.

So, the weight of 15 mm MS plate per sq ft = MS plate weight ÷ 10.764.

= 117.75 ÷ 10.764

= 10.939 kg/ft^{2}.

The weight of 15 mm MS plate per sq ft is 10.939 kg/ft^{2}.
