The Rebar Weight calculator computes the total weight(w) of rebar based on the length (l) and size (s) of rebar.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Weight of Rebar (RW): The total weight of the specified length of rebar is computed and returned in pounds. However, this can be automatically converted to many other weight units (e.g. kilograms or tons) via the pull-down menu.
Consider a basic construction materials problem where you need to compute the total weight of rebar for a job and you need the amount in pounds and kilograms. For example, the project requires the following rebar:
Using the Weight of Rebar calculator:
The rebar sizes indicate the diameter of the rebar rods (see Rebar Specification table). The default input length is feet, and the default output is in pounds, but both can be changed with the pull-down menus to any length (e.g. meters or miles) and any weight (e.g. kilograms, U.S. tons or Metric tons).
The length of rebar is multiplied by the pounds per foot, which is based on the size of the rebar (2-12,14,16,18,20).
