  • Cubic Meters to Metric Ton Using Gravel

    Hi there,

    Trying to get a final answer on a conversion I use much too often.

    Can somebody help me out with converting 3/4 inch A gravel from cubic meter to metric ton.

    Example,

    I need 55 cu. meters of A gravel. I would like to know how many tons that would be.

    thanks,

    I found the following density data for gravel.

    Gravel, loose, dry - 1.52 tonne/cubic meter
    Gravel, w/sand, natural - 1.92 tonne/cubic meter
    Gravel, dry 1/4 to 2 inch - 1.68 tonne/cubic meter
    Gravel, wet 1/4 to 2 inch - 2.00 tonne/cubic meter
    Concrete, Gravel - 2.40 tonne/cubic meter

    Choose the above density that most closely matches your gravel, and calculate using the formulas below.

    cubic meters * density = tonnes
    tonnes / density = cubic meters

    Thats the metric tonne.

      Ok, need to convert 80,000 cubic meters of dry (pre-mixed) cement to metric tons. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

        I came up with the same results on my research

            Dividing, that is an average density of about 2.3 t/m. That is pretty heavy. Even wet gravel would be nearer 2 t/m.

            So that raises the question, do you trust the weight, the volume, or neither?

              Wet sandy 1 inch minus gravel straight from the crusher would match those numbers almost exactly

                    Asphalt is around 2.4 t/m, so 1.2 t.

                          Assuming solid metal, no air spaces, you can use this table of density of common metals (in kg/m). For t/m, divide by 1000.
                          http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/me...ties-d_50.html

                          Pb 11.34 t/m
                          Zn 7.135 t/m
                          Cu 8.94 t/
                          Just multiply by the volume.

                            I need to convert for Tack Coat, Prime Coat and Bitumen 60/70 from area m2 to ton.. can you please help me on this..

                            1. Tack Coat = 664,309m2
                            2. Prime Coat = 307,236m2
                            3. Bitumen = ? ton
