Tube Weight Calculator

A Tube is a hollow cylindrical object. Also known as a pipe.

The Tube Weight calculator enables you to specify length, Material type and quantity to find the total weight.

Calculations can be saved to a table by clicking the "Add to Table" button (the table appears the first time the button is clicked).

There is also the option to create a PDF document with the calculator results.

This calculator includes the following algorithms:

Outer Surface Area = 2 x π x r1 x L

Inner Surface Area = 2 x π x r2 x L

Surface Area of ends = π x (r12-r22)

Volume = π x (r12-r22) x L
