Observations On Table Of Flat Iron

The weights here given are in pounds, ounces, and decimal parts, avoirdupois; and it will be seen, on inspecting the Table, that the first numbers in each page are those which apply to nut iron, and that the breadth increases by ¼ of an inch. The last numbers in each page show the weight of a square foot, according to the respective thickness of each bar. Hence the weight of any length of a bar of rectangular iron may be ascertained simply, as follows:

Rule.- Multiply the tabular weight, according to the thickness and breadth, by the number of feet in the bar, the product will be the weight required.

Example.- In a bar of iron whose thickness is 2¼ inches, the breadth 6½ inches, and the length 18 feet, what is the weight thereof?.

In the Table for 2 ¼inches thick, and opposite 6½ inches, stand 48 lbs. 7 ozs.; being the weight of one lineal foot. Multiply this number by 18 feet, and we have as follows;

48 lbs. 7 ozs. X 18 = 871 lbs. 14 ozs.
