This tool helps you quickly calculate sheet metal specifications for your projects.

## Sheet Metal Calculator

This tool calculates the weight of sheet metal based on the specified parameters. Please fill in the form fields:

**Metal Type:**Select the type of metal (Steel, Aluminum, Copper).**Thickness (mm):**Enter the thickness of the sheet metal in millimeters.**Width (mm):**Enter the width of the sheet metal in millimeters.**Length (mm):**Enter the length of the sheet metal in millimeters.**Quantity:**Enter the number of sheets.

Once all fields are filled, click on the “Calculate” button to see the estimated weight in kilograms.

## How It Works

The calculator uses the following densities for the metals:

- Steel: 7.85 g/cm³
- Aluminum: 2.70 g/cm³
- Copper: 8.96 g/cm³

The inputs are converted from millimeters to centimeters, and the volume of the sheet metal is calculated. The volume is multiplied by the density to determine the weight in grams. Finally, the weight is converted to kilograms for the result.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes uniform thickness and ignores the effects of any coatings or finishes. Please ensure all dimensions and quantities are accurate to get a reliable result.
