# Conversion of different Diameter Reinforcement Steel Bars to Tons

Converting Different diameter reinforcement steel bar into Tons is very important.

1. It assist in buying of Reinforcement because all reinforcement are being purchase in Tons.
2. It also help you in evaluating the exact amount to be paid to the Iron Bender.

Density = Mass/Volume

Density of steel = 7900kg/m3

Length of steel = 12m (standard 11.8m)

Tons for 8mm diameter steel bar

Volume = 22/7 * r2 * h

= 22/7 * 0.0042 * 12

= 0.000603m3

Mass = density * volume

= 7900 * 0.000603

= 4.77kg OR 0.00477tons

One 8mm reinforcement bar = 0.00477tons

Tons for 10mm diameter steel bar

Volume = 22/7 * 0.0052 * 12

= 0.000943m3

Mass = 7900 * 0.000943

= 7.45kg OR 0.00745tons

One 10mm reinforcement bar = 0.00745tons

Tons for 12mm diameter steel bar

Volume = 22/7 * 0.0062 * 12

= 0.00136m3

Mass = 7900 * 0.00136

= 10.73kg OR 0.01073tons

One 12mm reinforcement bar = 0.01073tons

Tons for 16mm diameter steel bar

Volume = 22/7 * 0.0082 * 12

= 0.00241m3

Mass = 7900 * 0.00241

CHECK OUT  How Many Pieces of Reinforcement Steel Bars will Give a Ton for the Different Diameters

= 19.07kg OR 0.01907tons

One 16mm reinforcement bar = 0.01907tons

Tons for 20mm diameter steel bar

Volume = 22/7 * 0.012 * 12

= 0.00377m3

Mass = 7900 * 0.00377

= 29.79kg OR 0.02979tons

One 20mm reinforcement bar = 0.02979tons

Tons for 25mm diameter steel bar

Volume = 22/7 * 0.01252 * 12

= 0.00589m3

Mass = 7900 * 0.00589

= 46.55kg OR 0.04655tons

One 25mm reinforcement bar = 0.04655tons

Calculating Total Pieces of Reinforcement bars that will give us a Ton for each of the Diameter

210 pieces of 8mm reinforcement bar will give 1 ton

134 pieces of 10mm reinforcement bar will give 1 ton

93 pieces of 12mm reinforcement bar will give 1 ton

52 pieces of 16mm reinforcement bar will give 1 ton

34 pieces of 20mm reinforcement bar will give 1 ton

21 pieces of 25mm reinforcement bar will give 1 ton
