Expert's answer

We have that 1 foot = 12 inches, so the volume of steel in cubic foots

is

& 2ft x& 5ft x 2in = 2 x 5 x 2/12 = 20/12 = 1.66667 cubic

foots.

Therefore the weigth of that plate is

& W = 490 *

1.666667 = 816,6666 lbs

is

& 2ft x& 5ft x 2in = 2 x 5 x 2/12 = 20/12 = 1.66667 cubic

foots.

Therefore the weigth of that plate is

& W = 490 *

1.666667 = 816,6666 lbs
