### What is the metric volume of 1000kg of soil?

The soil density must be given to convert from a mass measure
to a volume measure.
Assuming a clay soil of density 1200 kg/cubic meter, then the
volume is 1000/1200 cubic meter or 0.833 cubic meter
Assuming a sandy soil of density 1500 kg/cubic meter, then the
volume is 1000/15000 cubic meter or 0.667cubic meter
