How do you convert cubic yards of dry sand to imperial tons?
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 feet 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.
