A 156-kg coil of sheet steel is 0.80 mm thick and 50 cm wide. How long is the steel in the coil?

  • physics -

    The volume of the steel in the coil is
    V = Length*Width*Thickness
    = (mass)/(density)

    = 156 kg/7.9*10^3 kg/m^3
    = 1.98*10^-2 m^3

    Length = 1.98*10^-2/(0.5)(8*10^-4)
    = 49.4 meters

    I have used an "average" density for steel. If you know the alloy type, you can find a more accurate value.
