Can anyone offer assistance?

Thanks

Re: Converson from cubic meters to mt

if it is water, which has a density of 1 g/mL, then once cubic meter weighs 1 metric ton. (1000L, 1000kg).

If the material you are interested in has a density heavier than water (for example concrete), then you need to multiply the cubic meters by the density to get the weight in tons.

What is the material you are trying to measure?

Re: Converson from cubic meters to mt

That depends on the density of the substance. Every substance will have a different volume to weight conversion factor.

If you post the substance I may be able to find the data online, or if you know the density or specific gravity I can create the conversion from that.

I guess Mrs X is a much faster typist than I. She beat me by 2 minutes.

I wasn't rying to race, honest!!

James, here is the answer I put in the other thread you posted in, the thread title is similar.

Barite, aka baryte, is a form of Barium Sulphate, BaSO4. "Rocks and Minerals of the World" by David Cook and Wendy Kirk, gives the density of Baryte as 4.3 - 4.6. http://webmineral.com/data/Barite.shtml gives the density as 4.48. "SI Chemical Data" by Gordon Aylward and Tristan Findlay gives the density of BaSO4 as 4.5.

I guess you have the mineral form, so as I posted in your original thread, you multiply the cubic meters by the density to get the weight in tons.

729 x 4.3 = 3135 tons. 729 x 4.6 = 3353 tons.

You have about 3200 tons. "Rocks and Minerals" says it is used in the paint and paper industries and for oil drilling.

Hope this helps.

This source
http://www.powderandbulk.com/resourc...ty_chart_t.htm
gives a density of 0.56 g/cm³ (or 0.56 t/m³) for talc
32 m³ x 0.56 t/m³ = 17.9 t

"t" is the proper SI symbol for tonne or metric ton.
