## About Steel Plate Mass Calculator (Formula)

The Steel Plate Mass Calculator is used to calculate the mass of a steel plate. The formula for calculating the mass of a steel plate is as follows:

**Msp = SL * SW * T / 12 * 490**

Where: Msp = Steel Plate Mass (in lbs) SL = Length of the Steel Plate (in feet) SW = Width of the Steel Plate (in feet) T = Thickness of the Steel Plate (in inches) 490 = Density of Steel (in lbs/ft^3)

It’s important to note that the calculation is based on the assumption that the density of the steel plate is 490 lbs/ft^3. This may not be the case for all steel plates, so it’s important to check the density of the steel being used before making the calculation.

This calculator is useful for various applications, including construction, engineering, and metalworking, as it provides an accurate estimate of the weight of a steel plate, which is important for determining the cost, handling, and transportation of the plate.
