    .098 x width x thickness x length = weight of aluminum. (Not alloyed aluminum... just vanilla aluminum.)

    Could you please give me a web site to search specifications for Aluminum, for example I need to know what is the weight for a Round Bar, Square Tube, Tubing, etc.

    please your support.

    Kelly's information was very accurate. I heeded her advice and typed "aluminum weight formulas" in the Google bar and VOILA...!!! A bunch of results popped up.

    Here's one of many.... many... many... out there.

    then is correct if I use 0.044 kg/ft3 as a factor since we work on Kilograms.

    Heck, there's even a conversion factor table in the Ryerson materials catalog for different aluminum alloys.

    I learned something new today. Thanks, guys!
