Don't know the weight of the truck alone -- google it. Concrete (wet) could be assumed to be 145 pounds per cubic foot, and there are 27 cubic feet in one cubic yard. Compacted damp to dry soil (at "optimum moisture" for compacting) might run around 110 to 120 pounds per cubic foot, and loose soil would be considerably less (assuming it's dry and not saturated).

A good average density for topsoil is 100 pounds per cubic foot. There are 27 cubic feet in one cubic yard, and so one cubic yard weighs around 2,700 pounds.2,700/40 = 67.5Therefore, it will take about 67.5 forty pound bags to make one cubic yard of topsoil.

None, since there can be no conversion.A cubic yard is a measure of volume. A weight measures a different characteristic of an object and so, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid.

One cubic yard is 46,656 cubic inches.
