### I need to know how much stone in tons I need to fill 8.5 acre at 1.5 ft depth

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.

### How many yards are in one ton?

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.

### I am digging a 600 cubic foot drywell - with one inch gravel how many tons of gravel will I need to order to fill this drywell ?

600 cubic feet is16,99 cubic meters. It is actually depending of the specific mass of the gravel but a good assumption is that one cubic meter of gravel will weight more or less 1.5 ton. Therefor I don't think that that contractor did you in on this deal. In fact he might have undercharged you or he filled the hole initially with something else and put some gravel on top as last layer.

### How much anti freeze is needed at 30 percent to fill 600 feet of 3/4 copper tubing for my baseboard boiler

Let's see... the volume of a 1 foot section is
Pi * radius squared * 12 in (for cubic inches)
3.141 x .375 x.375 * 12 = 5.29 cu in
600 feet therefore has 3179.25 cu in volume
since we know (from google) that 1 pint = 28.875 cu in

Sso in 600 feet of pipe we would expect 110.1 pints of fluid.
@ 30% of volume, you will need 33 pints or 4.12 gallons of antifreeze....

### How to calculate yards in a pile of gravel

A yard of material is 3x3x3 so that is 27 cubic feet. you have a pile that is 4x15x12 and that is 720 cubic feet. So divide 720 by 27 and you get 26.66 yards

### How many tons in 3 cubic meters sq by 3inchs deep

I am sorry to say it but your units do not make sense: Units of volumes and areas are mixed up.
Let us try to make sense of it.
If you have some container whose base is 3 square meters (not cubic meter sq) and it has a height of 3 inches you can calculate its volume in cubic meters or in cubic inches or cubic feet. To do so convert the height in inches into meters and multiply the area of the base by the height in meters and you will obtain the volume in cubic meters. To get the volume in cubic inches convert the area of the base to square inches and multiply by the height in inches.

However, even after you have expressed the volume in one unit or another (m^3 or in^3) you cannot find the mass of the substance contained (be it in tons, tonnes or kilograms): You need to know the substance and more specifically its density or its specific gravity).
Please, reformulate your question and specify the substance that fills or would fill the volume. Without that information, nothing doing.
