A dual axle dump truck (ten wheels) is normally rated at 10 cubic yards (270 cubic feet) load capacity.

A single axle dump truck (six wheels) is normally rated at 5 cubic yards (135 cubic feet) load capacity.

These are volume measures not weight measures.

Yard is a measure of distance. Ton is a measure of mass (or weight). There is no direct conversion between them.

As a rule of thumb, you can multiply the cubic yards by a factor of 1.4 to get tons. But remember, yards is a measure of **volume** where tons is a measure of **weight.** Thus, depending upon the material being calculated, true weight can vary greatly. Obviously a yard of wet sand will weigh far more than a yard of dry sand, as water is more dense and has more weight than the sand it displaces in the volume. Large crush stone may weigh far less than pea gravel for the same volume as there is less air gap around the gravel than there is around the large crush. If you need a **true** weight of a yard of some material, you would have to know its weight in a particular volume and then calculate from that value.

One is a measurement of length, the other is a measure of weight.

however, you might be referring to 'Cubic Yards'?

depends upon the rock type and how fine it is, but one reference notes that one cubic foot of gravel typically weighs about 100 pounds.

So 1 ton has 2000/100 or 20 cubic feet of gravel. A cubic yard is 3x3x3 = 27 cubic feet to the cubic yard

Answer is 20/27 or 0.74 cu yard. I'd round that to 3/4 cubic yard.

The question is worded in such a way to be open to misunderstanding. I feel it could mean Norah must spread her stone at the rate of 2/3 of a ton per square yard across 4 square yards and the total is sought.

It could also be saying that Norah has 2/3 of a ton to be divided equally across 4 square yards and is seeking the amount of stone each square yard needs.

In the former case it is a matter of multiplying the vulgar fraction by four and in the latter case the answer could be approached by considering the total amount of stone given is four times the answer that is required and so would be given by dividing 2/3 by 4/1 or more simply by multiplying by 1/4 and not forgetting to cancel the resulting fraction down to the lowest common denominator.

A better way for practical purposes would be to convert 2/3 of a ton into pounds and then divide by four. A workman required to do the work would not be messing around with fractions but would be working in pounds and tons or if using Imperial measure it would be pounds, stones, hundredweight and tons.

Ton is a unit of mass (or weight), yard is a unit of length. There is no direct conversion between them.

Do you mean 941.39*cubic* yards? If so, cubic yards of what? 941.39 cubic yards of water weighs about 720 tons. 941.39 cubic yards of lead weighs about 8160 tons.

Do you mean 941.39

The guys that know this answer are the wrecking yard guys...Everyone else fixes what they have, so interchangability is rarely an issue.

They are basically a 1/4 ton truck. So you can safely haul 1/4 ton. Or 500 pounds.

It probably is wore in some areas. That is a little harder to see. I don't think it would be anything to worry about unless it is too excessive, then you might want to look around for another one at a junk yard that doen't have too much rock to it.
