Best Answer

More accurately, it's a cubic yard.

  • A cubic yard is a unit of volume. It tells you how much space something occupies. Picture in your head a box that measures three feet on each edge. The space inside that box measures one cubic yard.
  • A cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic feet. One cubic foot holds about 7.5 gallons. So, the box above can hold over 200 gallons of liquid -- assuming it is waterproof and won't leak all over the place.
  • If you wish to know how much a cubic yard of dirt weighs, well, that's another kettle of fish. (I'm not sure what system of units the kettle of fish belongs to, but that's an answer to another question.)
  • The weight of a cubic yard of dirt can vary greatly depending upon how much water is in it and how well packed it is. Moist topsoil weighs about 90 pounds per cubic foot, so a yard of it will weigh about 2400 pounds, more or less.

This answer will vary depending on what type of dirt it is, if it is a yard high, or a yard long, or whether there are particles in the dirt that will cause it to be heavier, such as water. But a normal yard high of dirt and I am assuming this as if it is a yard long and high, would be about ten to twenty pounds.
