Enter a value for all fields

The **Rebar Cost** calculator computes the total cost (**TC**) of rebar based on the length being purchased(**TL**), length of the individual pieces being bought (**uL**) and unit price (**uC**) of one piece of rebar.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**TL**) Total Length of Rebar being purchased - (
**PO**) Percent Overage to account for waste - (
**uL**) Length of pieces of rebar (stick) being purchased (e.g. 20 ft, 40 ft or 60 ft) - (
**uC**) Cost of one piece (stick) of rebar.

**Cost of Rebar (TC):** The calculator returns the following:

- total cost of the rebar in U.S. Dollars
- number of rebar sticks, and
- total length accounting for overage in feet.

Values with units can be automatically converted to compatible units (e.g. dollars to pesos) via the pull-down menu.

Some common rebar prices seen on the web in the U.S. are as follows:

- $3.28 - #3 rebar 20' grade 60
- $5.89 - #3 rebar 40' grade 60
- $5.63 - #4 rebar 20' grade 60
- $10.61 - #4 rebar 40' grade 60
- $8.78 - #5 rebar 20' grade 60
- $16.24 - #5 rebar 40' grade 60
- $12.66 - #6 rebar 20' grade 60
- $23.63 - #6 rebar 40' grade 60
- $16.44 - #7 rebar 20' grade 60
- $31.02 - #7 rebar 40' grade 60

You have computed that you need 840 feet of 1/2" (size #4) grade 60 rebar using the Rebar Calc at vCalc. You've shopped around and found that you can buy rebar for $5.63 per 20 foot piece at a rebar factory store. You can now use this calculator to compute total cost of rebar.

You enter:

**TL**= 840 feet**uL**= 20 feet. This is the length of the individual pieces of rebar you can buy.**uC**= $5.63. This is a unit cost of $5.63 for #4 20' grade 60 pieces.

**Cost of Rebar (TC)** is returned at 236.46 USD ($236.46 U.S. dollars).
