Heavy Hexnuts

Specifications for hexnuts of different sizes from B&G Manufacturing.

A half-inch nut is not 0.50 inches in size, of course: it's called 1/2 inch because it fits a bolt that's 0.50 inches in diameter. But how does the weight of a nut depend on this "bolt size"? And how does it depend on its other dimensions?

If you need to convert, there are 2.54 centimeters in an inch.

  • size The bolt size, in inches
  • mass Mass of the nut, in grams
  • flat the face-to-face "diameter" of the nut, in cm ("F" in the diagram)
  • thick the thickness the nut, in cm
