Cubic Meters to Metric Ton Using Gravel

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,

Re: Cubic Meters to Metric Ton Using Gravel

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?

Re: Cubic Meters to Metric Ton Using Gravel

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

Asphalt is around 2.4 t/m³, so 1.2 t.
