This tool helps you calculate the cost of a steel beam based on its dimensions and material price.

## How to Use the Steel Beam Price Calculator

To use the steel beam price calculator, follow the steps below:

- Enter the length, width, and height of the steel beam in meters.
- Enter the material density in kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m
^{3}). The default value is set to 7850 kg/m^{3}, which is the density of steel. - Enter the price per kilogram of the material in dollars.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the total price of the steel beam.

## How the Calculation Works

The calculator computes the price of the steel beam based on the following steps:

- Calculates the volume of the steel beam using the formula:
**Volume = Length × Width × Height**. - Determines the weight of the steel beam using the formula:
**Weight = Volume × Density**. - Computes the total price of the steel beam using the formula:
**Cost = Weight × Price per Kilogram**.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes a rectangular beam and does not account for any other shapes or structures. Make sure to input all measurements accurately and use the appropriate density for the material. The price calculated is an estimate and may vary based on actual pricing and other factors.
