# Weight of Steel Bars Formula – Weight of steel bars per meter

Here is a list of steel bars weight.

### Weight of bars in kilogram

6 mm 0.22 kg/meter
10 mm 0.62 kg/meter
12 mm 0.89 kg/meter
16 mm 1.58 kg/meter
20 mm 2.469 kg/meter
25 mm 3.858 kg/meter

## Weight of steel bars formula

To calculate weight of steel bars, there is a formula used to calculate weight.

W=(D^2 x L)/162

In the above formula:

• D is in millimeter.
• L is the total length of steel bars of which weight is to be calculated.

For example: if we have to calculate the weight of 10 mm steel bars, then we will proceed as follow:

W=10^2/ 162

W=0.617 kg/meter

In this way we will get steel bars weight per meter. After that multiply unit weight with the total length of steel bars of which weight is to be calculated. ## Weight of steel bars per foot in kg
