We Will Briefly Explain the Method for Computing the Weight of a Pipe Made of Iron
volume = total cross-sectional area x length of pipe.
weight of pipe = volume of pipe x unit weight of pipe materials.
The Calculation for Find Out the Weight of this Cast Iron Pipe is Made on the Basis of the Following Dimensions
The external diameter of the pipe = 14 cm
Length of the pipe = 5 meters
V = π (D2 – d2)/4 x L
V = 0.0376991 cu.m
So, weight = 0.0376991 x 7200 (as unit of cast iron is equivalent to 7200 kg/m3)
