Convert from Square Meters to tons

I'm a road construction contractor and need to convert my total asphalt material placed (10760 Square Meters) by the unit price (\$51.24 a U.S. Ton). Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've followed several threads and weblinks but still can't figure it out. Thanks for the help!

Re: Convert from Square Meters to tons

Do you know the thickness?

We need to know the volume (area * thickness) and the density. I can look up the density, so just need to know the thickness (in meters).

10760 square meters * height in meters = cubic meters

cubic meters * density = tonnes

"Density" is how much something weighs for how much space it takes up.

If you fill a cup with stones, it will heavier than if you fill the same cup with cotton wool, for example. This is because stones are denser than cotton wool.

Just a little note: You will end up with kg so then convert kg to metric tons. 1000 kg = 1 metric ton.

Zero kilograms. Square meters have no thickness, so no volume, and they don't weigh anything.

You need to specify a thickness to determine volume, and a material to determine density to determine the mass.

The reason this hasn't been answered is because the poster didn't put units with the thickness (0.300 WHAT?)
