You would also need to know the weight per volume of the material in question.

What is it made of? Search Google for a description of the material and find the density per cubic foot. Multiply the Width X Length X Height (inches). Then divide that number by 1728 (square inches per square foot).

Then multiply the answer by the density figure. This will be pretty close.

1728 is the number of inches in a CUBIC foot (12x12x12). There are 144 inches in a square (12x12) foot.

The figures we used in the const. company years ago was something like a little over 10 pounds per square foot of 1/4 inch mild steel. I believe you will find that easier to work with for a rough calculation.

That figure for steel weight of a little over 10 pounds per square foot of 1/4" thickness is correct. 40.8 pounds per inch of thickness of a 12" x 12" plate is bang on.

Now then, what's the answer to the question that we're all begging to know.

Why?

A 12"x12"x1/4" steel plate weights exactly 10.2096 lbs according to the website calculator that I posted the link to my above reply.
