function zlp_show_weight_admin_order_item_meta( $item_id, $item, $product ) {
	if($product->get_weight()){ ?>
		<table cellspacing="0" class="display_meta">
					<th><?php _e( 'Total Weight:' ); ?></th>
					<td><p><?php echo ($item->get_quantity())*($product->get_weight())." ".get_option('woocommerce_weight_unit'); ?></p></td>
	<?php }
To Customize the order meta box, we need to use the woocommerce hook called woocommerce_after_order_itemmeta. If you need more information on this hook then you can visit this link.
