It depends on the substance. Every substance will have a different weight to volume conversion factor.

If you post the substance I may be able to look up the data.

The substance I'm looking at is MTBE. It has a specific gravity of .74 g/cm3. And I need to convert 1 ton to 1 m3.

Re: Tons to Cubic Metre

It just so happens that gram/cubic centimeter is the same as tonne/cubic meter.

So something with a density of 0.74 gram/cubic centimeter you would:

tonne / 0.74 = cubic meters
cubic meters * 0.74 = tonnes

Re: Tons to Cubic Metre

loose dry gravel has a density of about 95 pounds/cubic foot, wet is about 125 pounds/cubic foot.

1 ton = 2000 pounds
2000 pounds / 95 pounds/cubic foot = 21 cubic foot
21 cubic foot = 0.6 cubic meter
