Metal Weight Calculator is a user-friendly tool that is useful to compute the weight of metal. All you have to do is select alloy name, item shape, diameter, thickness, number of pieces, and hit the calculate button to acquire the metal weight in a fraction of seconds.

**Metal Weight Calculator:** Do you really want to find the metal weight of different items? If yes, then stay on this page. This handy Metal Weight Calculator is helpful to determine the total weight of metal required to make an item. Here you can check the details like what type of metals can be made using this tool, the metal weight formula, and the steps on calculating the metal weight.

The basic weight calculation equation is weight = volume x density.

The total metal weight of elements formula is along the lines:

**total weight = volume * density * number of pieces**

Below listed are the simple guidelines and rules to calculate the metal weight of an element easily.

- Select the material/alloy name from the given list.
- In the same way select the alloy number.
- Choose anyone shape from circular, flat, hexagonal, octogonal, rectangle, pipe, plate, tube, rectangular tube, ring, round, sheet, square, and square tube.
- Enter the details in number of pieces, gauge, width, and length fields.
- Hit on the calculate button.
- It will display one metal wight, total metal weight.

**1. How to calculate the weight of a metal?**

You have to select the metal type and shape of the metal element, and their dimensions to get the total metal weight as output.

**2. What is the formula for steel weight calculation?**

The steel weight formula = volume of the steel item x density of steel.

**3. What are the different shapes of metals?**

The different metal element shapes are circular prism, rectangular prism, octagonal prism, hexagonal prism, wire, tube, ring based prism, cube, sphere, ring, and others.

**4. What are the units of weight?**

The weight units are gram, kilogram, tonne, milligram, microgram, and gigatonne.
