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

Mild steel channels are U-shaped steel structures whose size and thickness can be used to describe them. Mild steel channels are made up of two parts: the bottom flange and the top web. The flange is the bottom, horizontal part, and the web is the top, vertical part.

It doesn’t have equal-length sides. For example, a Mild Steel channel is 5 mm thick and has sides that are 100 mm wide and 50 mm wide.

### MS channel size

We know that an MS channel is made up of a flange and a web. It also comes in different sizes, from 75404.8 mm to 4001008.8 mm.

The MS channel’s weight is measured in kilograms per meter or kilograms per foot. Obviously, dimensions with a higher value will have a higher weight value, while dimensions with a lower value will have a lower weight value.

For example, the size of an MS channel is 100×50×5 mm

### Mild Steel Channel Unit Weight

The unit weight of an MS channel is found by using the formula weight = volume density. The density of steel is 7850 kg/m3, and the volume is found by multiplying the web height by the flange width 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
