### How to calculate the weight of the mild steel channel?

Channels made of mild steel are U-shaped steel constructions, and their dimensions and wall thickness are typically employed to define them. The bottom flange and the top web are the two components that make up a channel manufactured out of mild steel. The component that is horizontal at the bottom is called the flange, and the part that is vertical at the top is called the web.

It does not have sides of equal length all the way around. For instance, a channel made of mild steel has a thickness of 5 millimeters with sides that are 100 millimeters broad and 50 millimeters wide respectively.

### MS channel size

A flange and a web are the two components that make up an MS channel, as is well known. It is also available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 75404.8 mm all the way up to 4001008.8 mm.

The weight of an MS channel can be expressed in either kilo per meter or kilograms per foot. It seems to reason that dimensions with a higher value will also have a greater value for their associated weight, and dimensions with a lower value will have a lower value for their associated weight.

The dimensions of an MS channel, for instance, are 100 millimeters long by 50 millimeters wide and 5 millimeters deep.

### Mild Steel Channel Unit Weight

The weight of an MS channel can be calculated using the formula weight = volume density. This yields the unit weight of an MS channel. The density of steel is measured in kilograms per cubic meter, and its volume can be calculated by multiplying the height of the web by the width of the flanges by the thickness.

### Mild Steel Channel Weight in kg per Meter

MS Web Volume

MS Channel Size = 100×50×5 mm

Web Depth = 100 mm =0.1m

Web Thickness = 5 mm=0.005 m

Web Length = 1 m

Volume = l×b×h

Volume = 0.1×0.005×1 m3

Web Volume = 0.0005 m3

Two flange Volume

MS Channel Size = 100×50×5 mm

Flange Width = 50_5 mm =45mm=0.045 m

Flange Thickness = 5 mm=0.005 m

Flange Length = 1 m

Volume = l×b×h

Volume = 0.045×0.005×1 m3

Flange Volume = 0.000225 m3

Two Flange Volume = 0.000225×2 m3

Two Flange Volume of = 0.000450 m3

### MS channel Total volume

Total volume = volume of flange+ volume of web

Total volume = 0.000450 +0.0005 m3

Total volume =0.000950m3

4) Weight of MS channel

Weight = volume× density

Volume = 0.000950 m3

Density of steel = 7850 kg/m3

Weight = 0.000950m3×7850 kg/m3

Weight of MS channel = 7.45 kg/m

Ans: MS channel unit weight will be 7.45 kg
