2) To convert to bushels,you need to know that 1 ft³ = 1728 in³, and 1 bushel = 2150.42 in³ 3) To convert to pounds, multiply by the claimed 55 lb/bu. However, note the real standard weight for wheat, used in commercial contracts is 60 lb/bu, at specified standard quality and moisture content. Adjustments are made if the wheat is off these standard. 4) There are 2000 lb in the short ton commonly used in the US. But there are also long tons and metric tons. Are you sure which ton is meant?
