How to calculate the weight of 4′ x 8′ aluminum plate?
Many people want to know the weight of the 4×8 aluminum sheet, an important parameter is missing here, which is the thickness of the aluminum sheet. With the same area and different thicknesses, the weight of the aluminum plate will be different.
4×8 aluminum sheets weight calculation formula is as follows: length*width*thickness*2.7.
The density of pure aluminum is 2.7g/cm³
But we need still to get the thickness of the sheet before coming to an answer, it also needs to be converted into meters.
Let’s use a 1/4″ thick aluminum plate as an example
We need to convert units such as feet and inches into centimeters.
Width: 4ft = 1219mm = 121.9cm
Length: 8ft = 2438mm = 243.8cm
Thickness: 1/4“ = 0.635cm
121.9*243.8*0.635*2.7 = 50953.6g = 50.9536kg
It is also possible to calculate how much pounds per aluminum plate based on the results.
1 pound(lb) = 0.4535924 kg
1 kg = 2.2046226 pound(lb)
50.9536kg * 2.2046226 ≈112.33 pound
