__Carbon Fiber Square Hollow Tube Weight Formula:__

Carbon fiber, known for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, is used to create tubes with a square cross-section that are hollow inside. This design combines the high tensile strength of carbon fibers with the efficiency of a hollow structure, which reduces weight without sacrificing structural integrity.

The weight of the tube depends on its dimensions: the outer width, wall thickness, and length, as well as the density of the carbon fiber material.

The hollow section of the tube is key to its lightweight nature. By removing the central volume, the material is concentrated in the walls, where it can most effectively resist bending and compressive forces. This makes the tube highly efficient in load-bearing applications, as it maintains rigidity and strength while minimizing material usage.

The density of carbon fiber influences the overall weight of the tube. Carbon fiber is relatively light compared to metals, yet it retains high stiffness and strength.

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 acrylic 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 carbon fiber material in grams per cubic centimetre, g/cm^{3}.

**1. **A carbon fiber square hollow tube has an outer width of 6 cm, a wall thickness of 0.4 cm, a length of 150 cm, and the density of carbon fiber is 1.6 g/cm^{3}. Calculate the weight of the tube.

**Given: **W_{(cm) }= 6cm, T_{(cm)} = 0.4cm, L_{(cm)} = 150cm, d_{(g/cm3)} = 1.6g/cm^{3}.

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

W_{(g)} = [6^{2} – (6 – 0.4)^{2}] * 150 * 1.6

W_{(g)} = 4.64 * 150 *1.6

W_{(g)} = 1113.6g.

2. A carbon fiber square hollow tube has an outer width of 8 cm, a wall thickness of 1 cm, and a density of 1.8 g/cm^{3}. The tube weighs 2304 g. Find the length of the tube.

**Given: **W_{(cm) }= 8cm, T_{(cm)} = 1cm, W_{(g)} = 2304g, d_{(g/cm3)} = 1.8g/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)} = 2304 / [64 – (49)] * 1.8

L_{(cm)} = 2304 / 27

L_{(cm)} = 85.33cm.
