1 Layer = 12 drums
1 pallet = 3 layers
1 drum = 20 kg
1 pallet = 40 kg

3 layer w/pallet = (12 * 3 * 20) + 40
= 720 + 40
3 layer w/pallet = 760 kg

There is no question here?

To calculate volume, you need height, depth and width. Weight is dependent on the density of the items inside the box. For instance Rice Crispies are a lot lighter that ball bearings or Salt.

1 tonne of wheat will fit into how many cubic metres

There is no direct conversion for this because one unit is weight the other is volume, and i also depends on how much and if its compacted or loosely filled. You can do an experiment and calculate it yourself. Get a box and measure the L, W, and H in inches of the inside of the box, and weigh it empty. Then fill the box with the wheat (as loose or as tight as you think it will be in the silo). Once its filled level with the top edge, weight it again. Then use this formula to calculate the volume in cubic feet: V = (L x W x H)/1728 and subtract the total weight from the empty weight to get the weight of the wheat. If the total volume is say 1.47 cubic feet and the weight is 9.0 lbs. Use these values to calculate the totals your looking for, just convert them to metric before you do the calculation.

How to calculate how many months in 970days?

Divide 970 by 365 to get 2.657 which is 2 years and some.
Calculate 970-2x365=240 days.
Divide 240 by 30 days to get 8 months.
Total is about 24+8=32 months.
You can also calculate the average length of a month as 365/12=30.416666666
Then calculate 970/(365/12)=970x12/365=31.89041096 or about 32 months. Or 31 months and 27 days.

Conversion of log base 10 to log base 2

To calculate the log base 2 of a value, calculate its log and then divide by the log of 2. You can use either the log or the ln keys, but be consistent. For example, to calculate the log base 2 of 16, you can calculate either log(16)/log(2) or ln(16)/ln(2).
