How to calculate the weight of 4′ x 8′ aluminum plate?

There are two ways to know the weight of an aluminum sheet.
1. weighing out the weight with a measuring tool
2. Calculate the approximate weight of the aluminum plate according to the formula and the length, width and thickness dimensions of the 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.

Calculation formula

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.

Calculation method

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

What is the weight of the 4×8 aluminum plate?

Which is heavier, a 4×8 aluminum plate or a 4×8 steel plate?

It is known that iron is heavier than aluminum in the same volume, so a steel plate of the same size and thickness is heavier than an aluminum plate, about 2.93 times heavier.
