Regarding this, how much weight can 16 gauge steel support?
Wire Gauges and Sheet Metal Gauges / Weights Ga = Gauge | Wgt = Weight
|Ga#||Sheet Steel||Galvanized Steel|
|Ga (in.)||Wgt (lb/ft2)|
Subsequently, question is, how many pounds can steel hold? For example, a tensile strength of a steel that can withstand 40,000 pounds of force per square inch may be expressed as 40,000 PSI or 40 KSI (with K being the denominator for thousands of pounds). The tensile strength of steel may also be shown in MPa, or megapascal.
Also know, how much does a 4x8 sheet of 16 gauge steel weigh?
There actually are simple 16 gauge steel is 1/16 (0.0625) inch thick, and steel weighs approximately 490 pounds per cubic foot > (0.0625 inch) (1 ft / 12 inches) (4 ft x 8 ft)(490 pounds/ cubic foot) = approximately 81.67 pounds.
What weight can 10 gauge steel hold?
Thus, a 10 gauge steel sheet which has a thickness of 0.1345 inches will weigh 41.82*0.1345 = 5.625 pounds per square foot.
