AR500 Steel is a type of steel that is used in many industries. It has high abrasion resistance and good toughness, but it is not as hard as other types of steel. AR500 steel can be used for heavy machinery parts, but it’s not as strong as other types of steel. The hardness of AR500 steel depends on the grade of the material and the temper of the metal.
The hardness of AR500 steel is measured on a Brinell scale, which measures a material’s ability to withstand indentations with a ball bearing or shot. The higher the number on the Brinell scale, the harder the material is.
The formula used to calculate hardness using this method is: HV = N / (d * M) where HV = Hardness Value (Brinell), N = Number of Indentations, d = Ball Diameter (in inches) and M = Weight per Ball/Shot (in grams).
