Re: lbs to cubic ft

That depends on the density of the substance. Is it sand, topsoil, gravel, water, etc?

Re: lbs to cubic ft

I couldn't find data for compost, but I found data for bags of fullers topsoil, and that is 42 pounds/cubic foot. I would assume compost is quite similar, if not slightly lower density.

A 40 pound bag will be about 1 cubic foot. So you would need about 2 and 1/2 bags.

Re: lbs to cubic ft

A 5 cu ft freezer is for sale, I want a freezer for frozen meat. I am curious how many lbs of meat I'll be able to store with a 5 cu ft freezer. It may not be grounded either. But roughly, how could you calculate this? THANKS!!!
