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 Formula

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
