__ABS Square Hollow Tube Weight Formula:__

An ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) square hollow tube is a lightweight and durable structural component commonly used in various industrial, construction, and DIY applications.

It is characterized by its square cross-section with a hollow centre, making it both strong and efficient in material usage.

The tube’s walls are made from ABS, a thermoplastic polymer known for its excellent impact resistance, toughness, and ability to withstand various environmental conditions, including exposure to chemicals and moisture.

The design of a square hollow tube allows it to bear loads effectively while minimizing weight, making it ideal for frameworks, support structures, and other applications where strength and lightness are crucial. The hollow section reduces the overall material required, thus lowering the cost and weight without compromising the tube’s structural integrity.

The thickness of the walls of the square hollow tube can vary, influencing its strength and load-bearing capacity. The outer dimensions, wall thickness, and material density are key factors in determining the tube’s weight.

The formula accounts for the hollow nature of the tube by subtracting the inner volume from the outer volume, leaving only the material that contributes to the weight.

Weight, W_{(g)} in grams equals the difference between the square of width, W_{(cm)} in centimetres and the square of the difference between width, W_{(cm)} and thickness of the tube, T_{(cm)} in centimetres all multiplied by Length, L_{(cm)} in centimetres and density of the ABS material, d_{(g/cm3)} in grams per cubic centimetre.

Weight, W_{(g)} = [ W^{2}_{(cm)} – (W_{(cm)}– T_{(cm)})^{2} ] * L_{(cm)} * d_{(g/cm3)}

W_{(g)} = weight in grams, g.

W_{(cm)}= width in centimetres, cm.

T_{(cm)} = thickness of the tube in centimetres, cm.

L_{(cm)} = length in centimetres, cm.

d_{(g/cm3)} = density of the ABS material in grams per cubic centimetre, g/cm^{3}.

__ABS Square Hollow Tube Weight Calculation:__

- An ABS square hollow tube has a width of 5cm, thickness (T) of 0.5 cm, length (L) of 200cm, and the density of ABS plastic is 1.04 g/cm³. Calculate the weight of the tube.

**Given: **W_{(cm)}= 5cm, T_{(cm)} = 0.5cm, L_{(cm)} = 200cm, d_{(g/cm3)} = 1.04g/cm^{3}.

Weight, W_{(g)} = [ W^{2}_{(cm)} – (W_{(cm)}– T_{(cm)})^{2} ] * L_{(cm)} * d_{(g/cm3)}

W_{(g)} = [5^{2} – (5 – 0.5)^{2}] * 200 * 1.04

W_{(g)} = 4.75 * 200 *1.04

W_{(g)} = 988g.

- An ABS square hollow tube has a side length W = 10cm, a wall thickness T = 2cm and a material density, d = 0.0012g/cm
^{3}. If the tube weighs W = 1440g. Calculate the length of the tube.

**Given: **W_{(cm)}= 10cm, T_{(cm)} = 2cm, W_{(g)} = 1440g, d_{(g/cm3)} = 0.0012g/cm^{3}.

Weight, W_{(g)} = [ W^{2}_{(cm)} – (W_{(cm)}– T_{(cm)})^{2} ] * L_{(cm)} * d_{(g/cm3)}

L_{(cm)} = W_{(g)} / [ W^{2}_{(cm)} – (W_{(cm)}– T_{(cm)})^{2} ] * d_{(g/cm3)}

L_{(cm)} = 1440 / [100 – (64)] * 0.0012

L_{(cm)} = 1440 / 0.0432

L_{(cm)} = 33333.33cm.
