It will depend on the size of your wheelbarrow. Check on your wheelbarrow or it's manufactures website for the size.
Depends on the size of the wheelbarrow !
Wheelbarrow's come in different sizes.
Generally the rule of thumb for this is 2.5 to 1, meaning you would need 2.5 cubic meters of sand to manufacture 1 cubic meter of concrete.
Wheelbarrows come in various sizes and shapes. There's no way to calculate this.
( 1 ) divided by (the capacity, in cubic meters, of the wheelbarrow you're using)
1 / (the capacity of each wheelbarrow, in cubic meters)
It doesn't matter what substance you're moving. The number is always . 1 / capacity of the wheelbarrow in cubic meters .
35 to 70 It depends on the mix of concrete you are using. A basic 1-2-3 mix is 5 1/2 cubic feet of portland cement (a wheelbarrow, depending on its size, holds 1/2 to 1 cubi…c feet), 11 cubic feet of sand, and 16 1/2 cubic feet of stone (called aggregate) from 1/2 to 1 inch in size each. To this is added about 12-15 gallons of water.(1 1/2 to 2 cu.ft.). This will make just a little less than 1 cubic meter of concrete. A weaker mix for basic work not needing structural strength a 1-2-3 mix of 1 part stone, 2 parts cement and 3 parts sand can be used, this would require a bit less than 1 part water. A stronger mix of 1 part cement, 1 1/2 parts sand and 3 parts stone with about 1/2 part water is good for heavy duty concrete work. Stone will increase the strength of concrete and sand will weaken it. Using too much or too little water in the mix will weaken it as well. Additionally, concrete with too much water or too little cement tends to shrink and crack as it sets. The amount of water to use is mainly dependent on the cement in the mix. There should be at least half as much cement as sand in any mixture. The amount of stone to use should be between 1/4 and 3/4 of the total mixture. Grouts and mortars use no stone and may add limestone as an additional binder. These should not be used for structural concrete, but can be used for foundation pointing, bolt anchoring or mortaring brickwork.
It depends of course a bit on the size of the wheelbarrow and on how high you want to pile up the sand. But a typical wheelbarrow might hold about 85 liters of sand. 1 cub…ic meter equals 1,000 liters. So you would need about 12 wheelbarrow loads to get 1 cubic meter.
