Rigging Training Workshop - Load Weight Estimation (Half Circle)

Estimating a load's approximate weight is always an important part of any rigger's checklist and must be done before choosing the rigging system. Have some fun and estimate the weight of the half circle of solid steel below.

To help you in your calculations we have provided Panel 6 of the ITI Bookstore's Journeyman Rigger's Reference Card, which details weight of various materials and quick estimation formulas. Answers can be found below.
