Hi there,

Trying to get a final answer on a conversion I use much too often.

Can somebody help me out with converting 3/4 inch A gravel from cubic meter to metric ton.

Example,

I need 55 cu. meters of A gravel. I would like to know how many tons that would be.

thanks,

I found the following density data for gravel.

Gravel, loose, dry - 1.52 tonne/cubic meter
Gravel, w/sand, natural - 1.92 tonne/cubic meter
Gravel, dry 1/4 to 2 inch - 1.68 tonne/cubic meter
Gravel, wet 1/4 to 2 inch - 2.00 tonne/cubic meter
Concrete, Gravel - 2.40 tonne/cubic meter

Choose the above density that most closely matches your gravel, and calculate using the formulas below.

cubic meters * density = tonnes
tonnes / density = cubic meters

Thats the metric tonne.

Ok, need to convert 80,000 cubic meters of dry (pre-mixed) cement to metric tons. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

I came up with the same results on my research

Dividing, that is an average density of about 2.3 t/m³. That is pretty heavy. Even wet gravel would be nearer 2 t/m³.

So that raises the question, do you trust the weight, the volume, or neither?

Wet sandy 1 inch minus gravel straight from the crusher would match those numbers almost exactly

i want to convert 0.5 cubic meters to ton using ashphalt

Asphalt is around 2.4 t/m³, so 1.2 t.

I need to convert cubic metres to tons. Please help.

Pb - 6.66 cubic metres to tons (wet or dry)
Cu - 3.36 cubic metres to tons (wet or dry)
Zn - 5.68 cubic metres to tons (wet or dry)

Cu - 3.36 cubic metres to tons (wet or dry)
Zn - 5.68 cubic metres to tons (wet or dry)

Assuming solid metal, no air spaces, you can use this table of density of common metals (in kg/m³). For t/m³, divide by 1000.

Pb 11.34 t/m³
Zn 7.135 t/m³
Cu 8.94 t/³
Just multiply by the volume.

[Please give me the answe 1 metric ton soil = equal to howmany Cu.M soil

Varies tremendously with quality of soil and dryness:

Good quality topsoil with high organic content: 0.95 t/m³
Low quality soil ( decomposed rock, mixes of sand, gravel, clay): 1.5 - 1.7 t/m³

If the soil is wet or damp, allow up to another 0.4 t/m³ for water, depending on wetness, for any of the above dry figures.

Without knowing what kind of soil you are getting, you really can't make a decent estimate.

That waybill might include the tare weight of the truck, about 10t for an tandem axle truck.

Can you tell me where this was referenced from ? Laura

How does one convert 0.40 in^3 to ton using 3/4 and 1/2 dry gravel.
