A cubic yard is a measure of volume (length in feet X width in feet X depth in feet/27=cubic yards) and tons is a measure of weight. The weight of a material depends on its d…ensity, therefore, to determine the number of yards in a ton of material, the density of the material must be known. Sand has an average weight of 2,700 pounds per cubic yard (Refer to Table 1 in this chart of material weights http://www.age.psu.edu/extension/factsheets/h/H20.pdf). One ton is 2,000 pounds, therefore, there are 1.35 Tons in one cubic yard of sand. Inversely, if 1.35 tons of sand is equivalent to one cubic yard of sand, then using a ratio (tons|cubic yards), there are 0.74 cubic yards in one ton of sand. For those of you that prefer to see this answer as a mathematical calculation: length in feet X width in feet X depth in feet/27=cubic yards Sand = 2,700 lbs/cubic yards (*This value is specific to Sand) *2,700 lbs|1 Cu Yd * 1 Ton|2,000 lbs = 1.35 Ton|Cu Yd OR 1|1.35 = 0.74074 Cu Yd in 1 Ton of Sand Of course nature is not precise with sand and it's weight may varying to some degree based on the grain size, the moisture content, etc.
Insufficient data to answer, a cubic yard is a measure of volume (3feet x 3feet x 3feet); whereas a ton is a measure of mass/weight (2000 pounds). Different materials have dif…ferent weights. A "yard" of feathers will weigh a lot less than a "yard" of mud. A cubic yard in shiping is counted as a ton.
Start with a conversion factor. An "old timer's" view is that a cubic foot of dry sand weighs about 125 pounds. There are 3 feet in a yard. There are 3 x 3 or 9 square f…eet in a square yard. There are 3 x 3 x 3 or 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard. As there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard and there are 125 pounds to a cubic foot of our dry sand, there are 27 x 125 pounds of dry sand per cubic yard, or 3,375 pounds of dry sand per cubic yard. (Yes, there are that many.) There are 2,240 pounds in an Imperial ton. There are 3,375 divided by 2,240 Imperial tons in a cubic yard of dry sand, or right at 1.5 Imperial tons of dry sand per cubic yard. To convert cubic yards of dry sand to Imperial tons, multiply the number of cubic yards of dry sand by 1.5 and your answer will appear. Every time.
This web site has a calculator to determine how many cu yards and tons one needs of limestone "traffic bond". http://www.rwmillerandsons.com/prod04.htm Using that calc…ulator (and changing numbers until I got 1 ton) the calculator says I would need .66 cu yards.
Approximately one ton, it depends how dry it is, and can depend on the kind of sand it is, but generally you figure about a ton. A cubic yard of water weighs 1,674 lbs. , or 6…2 lbs per a cubit foot which contains approx 7.? gallons which weighs 8.33 lbs.
Approximately 20 for dry sand. It varies a little depending on how fine the grains are.
There is approximately 1. 35 tons in a cubic yard of fine sand.
It will depend on type of sand ie fine,medium,coarse one cu mt per ton of sand will range between 1.4 ton to 2 ton
1 cubic meter of fine sand is equal to 1.25 tons
It depends. Is it: Sand, wet, packed Sand, dry Sand, loose Sand, rammed Sand, water filled Sand w/ Gravel, dry Sand w/ Gravel, wet
That entirely depends on the type of sand, and how consistent the particle size is.
If i remember right i think its 1.2
That depends entirely on what kind of sand how deep you spread it. As an approximation, you could assume a bulk density for dry sand of about 110 lb/ft3. One ton (2000 lb) of …sand would thus be about 18.18 ft3 or 0.673 yd3. If you spread it 6 inches deep you could cover about 4 square yards. At a foot deep, you would cover 2 square yards. At 3 inches deep you would cover 8 square yards. At 1 inch deep you would cover 24 square yards Reported bulk densities for sand range from 78 lb/ft3 for molding sand to 130 lb/ft3 for moist sand.
