Rule. - To the interior diameter of the pipe, in inches, add the thickness of the metal; multiply the sum by the decimal numbers opposite the required thickness and under the metal's name; also by the length of the pipe in feet, and the product is the weight of the pipe in lbs.

1. Required the weight of a copper pipe whose interior diameter is 7 inches, its length 6 feet, and the metal 1-8 of an inch in thickness.

7.5 + .125 = 7625 X 152 X 625 = 724 lbs.

2. What is the weight of a leaden pine 18 feet in length, 3 inches interior diameter, and the metal of an inch in thickness?

3 + .25 = 3.25 X 3.867 X 18.5 = 232.5 lbs.
