    Metric Tonnes

    Hello all

    I have 38,265 metres of 7 inch pipe at a weight of 26 1b per foot at 51.04 Euros per metre. How do I find out the price in metric tonnes?

    1. Normally the price is measured in in Europe. (In those ancient euro-less times the nickname of a Dutch 1000 guilders billet was ton - but I assume that you don't mean this(?))

    2. 38.265 m ----> 126.72244 feet

    126.72244 feet * 26 lbs/feet ----> 3294.783465 lbs

    3294.783465 lbs ----> 1494.4887 kg = 1.4944887 t

    Total price:

    38.265 m * 51.04 /m ----> 1953.0456

    1953.0456 / 1.4944887 t = 1306.832 /t
