That depends on what you mean by "ton."

3 short tons is 6000 pounds, 3 long tons is 6720 pounds, 3 metric tons is about 6614 pounds.

Stone is approximated at about 2700 lbs. per cu. yd.

An acre is 43560 sq. ft.

8.5 acres is 370260 sq. ft.

There 9 sq.ft. per sq. yd., thus there are 41140 sq. yds. in 8.5 acres.

A cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet (LxWxH).

Since you are only going to be at 1.5 feet, each square yard is equal to 1/2 cubic yard, so to figure the cubic yards divide sq.yds. by 2, thus you get 20570 cu. yds. of stone.

20570 x 2700 = 55539000 pounds. Divide by 2000 to get tons:

55539000/2000 = 27769.5 tons.

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.

Hello. That's a little tricky. I had 10 yards delivered years ago and I figured that I filled my wheelbarrow about 15 times for each yard. Keep in mind that usually 10 - 12 loads of soil is about 1 cubic yard, but obviously lighter and easier to push. So,...count on about 160 -180 lbs per load times 15 loads per yard equals 2400 - 2700 pounds. Times that, times 20 yards, and you have 48000 - 54000 pounds, or about 24 - 27 tons. Now, you have to think about all that dirt on the rocks which I don't think will add too much weight unless it's being dug out of clay then you might want to add a few hundred pounds per ton.

That depends on the ton. A short ton is 2000 pounds, a long ton is 2240 pounds, a metric ton is 2204.623 pounds.

Not every 3-ton unit weighs exactly the same - they differ in weight depending on how they were manufactured. Most 3-ton units weigh around 150 pounds (I would guess) give or take a few pounds.

The "3-ton" refers to the "cooling capacity" of the air conditioner.

It's actually 'slang' for 36,000 Btu.

Note; 12,000 btu equals 1 ton.

Hence a 24,000 Btu unit would be called a "2-ton unit," and a 12,000 Btu unit would be called a 1 ton unit.

Metric what, Liters, milliliters?

1 1/2 pounds converted to what grams, kilograms?

Your answers whatever the values are can be found from any of hundreds of online converters.

You pick the value that you want converted and the value you want it converted to.

One that will work is:

Air conditioner equipment power in the U.S. is often described in terms of "tons of refrigeration." A "ton of refrigeration" is defined as the cooling power of one short ton (2000 pounds or 907 kilograms) of ice melting in a 24-hour period. This is equal to 12,000 BTU per hour, or 3517 watts.[13] Residential central air systems are usually from 1 to 5 tons (3 to 20 kilowatts (kW)) in capacity. To determine the correct size keep in mind that 12,000 BTU's equals 1-ton. Use the table below to determine the size AC that you need. Hope this helps.
