### What are the units for measuring specific weight?

Specific weight is a substance's weight (not mass) per unit
volume. If you take a known volume of something -- say a cubic foot
of it -- and place it on a scale, you know how much it weighs per
cubic foot. So, let's say you have a cubic foot of water. Although
its weight will vary somewhat with temperature, its average SW is
about 62.4 pounds per cubic foot. Compare that to gasoline at 42.5
pounds per cubic foot and...

### How do you calculate hot mix asphalt by the ton to square feet covering an area 20x20 9 inches thick?

Calculate the volume of mix needed by multiplying 20x20x9. This
gives cubic inches. Then divide that answer by 144 cubic inches per
cubic foot, and you have the volume in cubic feet.
A cubic foot of asphalt is a different weight depending on the
weight of the rock in contains, but let's 158 pound of asphalt
hotmix per cubic foot. Multiply the volume in cubic feet, above, by
158lbs, and you have the weight of mix per 20x20x9.
