    Volume x lbs/volume
    Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

    Hello there
    If you steel shape is simple their answers are right but are your shape is not as a geometric shape I suggest you model it in SolidWorks software and go to the evaluate and find its weight with a high accuracy

    First calculate the volume of the steel sheet. Note: If you are calculating the weight of circular steel reinforcement bar than calculate its volume by using this formula (πD^2/4) and then just multiply by the density of steel which is 7850 kg/m^3 and you will get the final weight of the steel.
