Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

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.

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.

First step - convert everything to feet - 5" is 5/12 of a foot

40 x 4 x 5/12 = 66.6 cubic feet.

Since a cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet, there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

66.6 cubic feet / 27 cubic feet/cubic yard = 2.5 cubic yards.

Good luck.

you have to many numbers there

If you are saying 12'x15'x what deep 3 inches or 3' ?

12'x15'=180 sq ft x3' = 540 cubic feet or 20 cubic yards

x3inches= 40 cubic feet

Figure 1 90 lb. bag per square ft., 6" deep.

Don't forget sand to grade and rebar to reinforce.

You probably won't find enough guys to mix all that concrete, so you'd really be better off hiring a concrete truck.

Tip: It's best to over estimate a little so you won't be caught short.

AC is approx. 145 lbs per cubic ft.

there are 27 cubic ft in 1 cubic yard

60 tons x 2000 = 120000 divided by 145 = 827.58 cubic ft divided by 27 = 30.65 cubic yards

square yards would depend on thickness of AC.

you can take thickness x sq ft to get cubic ft

in concrete 1 cubic yard =

4 inch thickness = 81 sq ft or 9 sq yrds

6 inch thickness = 54 sq ft or 6 sq yards

there are 27 cubic ft in 1 cubic yard

60 tons x 2000 = 120000 divided by 145 = 827.58 cubic ft divided by 27 = 30.65 cubic yards

You say 200yds do you mean 200 sq yds or cubic yds? There are 9 cubic feet in a square yard 1ft deep and 27 cubic ft in a cubic yard. You will have to know and factor in the weight of 1 cubic ft of manure to get your tonnage. 2,000 lbs in a short ton.

How deep do you want to cover it?

1000 square feet covered one inch deep would be about 83.3 cubic feet.

1000 square feet covered one foot deep would be 1000 cubic feet.

1000 square feet covered two feet deep would be 2000 cubic feet.

1000 square feet covered one inch deep would be about 83.3 cubic feet.

1000 square feet covered one foot deep would be 1000 cubic feet.

1000 square feet covered two feet deep would be 2000 cubic feet.

Metric Meter is not a relatable unit to tons. Cubic meter might be what you are looking for.

That being the case it depends on what you have 3 tons of, everything has a different density, meaning everything has a different weight(tons) per unit of volume(cubic meter) so first off you need to find out what material you are trying to figure this out for. Water for example weighs less per cubic meter than steel weighs per cubic meter. Then once you know that material you can then ask what is the density of that material. Once you find the density you can convert that information into any relative unit of measure you need, so re-post with a little more info and make sure you are looking for the right units and somebody can answer your question.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Cubic meter is a measure of volume. Ton is a measure of weight (or mass). The weight of 4.5 cubic meters of something depends on the density of that something. 4.5 cubic meters of air weighs a fraction of a ton. 4.5 cubic meters of water weighs 4.5 tons. 4.5 cubic meters of lead weighs more than 50 tons.
