Thanks John, I missed the Te/mm3 I had not seen that before

I updated the calculation to remove the external function "Spline()" and used an equation after fitting a trendline to the tabulated data.

Hi Bob actually the units are mm and tonnes so my density is tonnes/mm^3. Also notice that acceleration due to gravity is mm/s^2. So I think the calculation is fine.
The choice of units might seem a little odd but I often work in mm when modelling using finite element software. The handcalc is a sense check on my FE model results.

Could you please check your steel Your Density of material. 7860 kg/m3.
you have entered 0.000000000786 kg/mm3
1 kilogram / cubic meter = 1.0 × 10-9 kilograms / cubic millimeter
So your imput for steel should be 7860 * 10-9.
If I have missed anything then sorry.
