Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Is it possible to convert a given number of linear metres of a plastic into kilograms?

All advice gratefully received.

With additional information, "probably."

You have to know the density of the plastic, mass/volume. You have to have enough details on the shape, to calculate the volume associated with a length. (For a rod-shaped material, diameter and length would be enough)

Without the required, added info, impossible.
