A handy tool for figuring out the weight of U-shaped metal profiles. This calculator uses a formula that looks at the outer and inner dimensions of the U section, giving you an accurate weight estimate.

Whether you're an experienced engineer or just someone into metalworking, this calculator makes it easy to find out how heavy your U section is, making your projects more efficient.

## What is a U Section?

A U section, also called a channel or C-section, is a versatile metal shape that looks like the letter 'U'. It's commonly used in construction and manufacturing because it's strong and easy to work with. U sections come in different sizes and materials, fitting a variety of uses.

## U Section Formula

Calculating the weight of a U section involves looking at the outer and inner dimensions.

The formula is: Volume (V) = Cross-Sectional Area (A) × Length (L)

$V=\left(\left(X1×Y1\right)–\left(x2×y2\right)\right)×L$

This formula considers both the bigger and smaller dimensions for a more accurate weight estimate.
