Re: converting metric tonne to metric cubed

I believe you are in error with your conversion factor, it should read 1.59tn per m3, NOT 1.59kg per m3. Otherwise a kilo a sugar, or 2.2lb, wouldn't fit into any shopping trolley, let alone a shopping bag

Yes that density should have said kilogram/liter, which is the same as tonne/cubic meter.

I deleted the previous post with the error.

Gravel, loose, dry - 1.52 kilogram/liter
Gravel, w/sand, natural - 1.92 kilogram/liter
Gravel, dry 1/4 to 2 inch - 1.68 kilogram/liter
Gravel, wet 1/4 to 2 inch - 2.00 kilogram/liter
Concrete, Gravel - 2.40 kilogram/liter

I can't find a density for mortar (concrete with only sand and cement, no gravel). Regular concrete is 2.4 t/m³. Probably not much different. So 4/2.4 = roughly 1.7 m³

Re: converting metric tonne to metric cubed

I'm looking for the conversion factor for cubic meters to ton metrics. My material is gravel from 0-20mm or 0-56mm. Thank You.

From the post above, if you really have material down to sand-size particles, I'd use the sand and gravel figure, otherwise the gravel:
Gravel, w/sand, natural - 1.92 kilogram/liter
Gravel, dry 1/4 to 2 inch - 1.68 kilogram/liter

densities in kg/L are numerically the same as t/m³
