How to Calculate the weight of MS Angle? Simple way to calculate Mild Steel weight

What is MS Angle?

MS angle, or mild steel angle, is a type of steel angle that is made from low carbon steel. It is a versatile and widely used construction material, and it is known for its strength, durability, and corrosion resistance.

How to Calculate the weight of MS Angle?

To calculate the weight of a mild steel angle (MS angle), you will need to know the size and thickness of the angle, as well as the density of the steel. Here is the formula for calculating the weight of an MS angle:

Weight (kg) = (Length (m) x Width (m) x Thickness (m) x Density (kg/m3))

For example, if you have an MS angle that is 2 meters long, 0.5 meters wide, and 0.1 meters thick, and the density of the steel is 7,850 kg/m3, the weight of the angle would be:

Weight (kg) = (2 m x 0.5 m x 0.1 m x 7,850 kg/m3) = 0.78 kg

It’s important to note that this formula assumes that the angle is in the shape of a rectangular bar. If the angle has a different shape, such as an L-shaped or T-shaped angle, the weight may be calculated differently.

It’s also worth noting that the density of steel can vary depending on the type of steel and the manufacturing process used. In general, the density of mild steel is around 7,850 kg/m3, but it can range from 7,600 to 8,000 kg/m3. If you are unsure of the density of the steel you are using, you can check with the manufacturer or refer to a materials reference guide.

Type of Angle : There are Two Type of Angle

1# Equal Angle

2# Unequal Angle

Example of Equal Angle:








Example of Unequal Angle:





Equal Ms Angle weight calculation formula : Web*0.091(Formula)* Thickness = Total weght

MS angle have two parts flange and web

For Example Ms For example M.S. Angle 50x50x5mmx6mtr


IF you need 1mter weight then Just Divide By 6.
