  • Cubic Meter Calculation

    I need to find out how many pieces of size 950mm * 140mm * 18mm I can create from 20 cubic meters. How do I calculate this? TIA

    Re: Cubic Meter Calculation

    your figures 950mm x 140mm x 18 mm = 2,394,000 cubic mm

    it might be easier to convert the mm in centimeters

    95cm x 14cm x 1.8 cm = 2394 cubic centimeters

    2394 cubic centimeters is 0.002394 of a cubic meter

    20 / 0.002394 = 83542.1288

      Oops, looks like that last step in the calculation is off by a factor of 10 too large....

      20 / 0.002394 = 8354.2

      Also, abdlah, it's not clear from your question whether you are molding these pieces from a fluid substance, or whether you are cutting them out of a block of solid material.

      If you're cutting them out of a solid block, then you may not be able to avoid wasting a certain amount of material if each dimension (length, width, height) is not an exact multiple of your individual pieces. This would give you fewer pieces than calculated above.

        Thanks Roy I must have put the decimal in the wrong place.

              1 cubic meter = 264.172025 gallons
              135*264.172025 = 35,663.2 gallons

                  1 cubic meter is 1 m x 1 m x 1 m
                  Since 100 cm = 1 m, it is also
                  100 cm x 100 cm x 100 cm = 10^6 cm

                      I used exponents to avoid counting off all those zeroes.
                      But you have one too many, 1 000 000 cm

                          Around 1.5-1.6 tonne, but it will vary with type of stone.

                            can you advise if asteel pipe 457 mm od x 12.7 mm wall x 12.0 metres - ie 139 KG / metre will be calculated as dead weight or cubic weight. And if cubic weight - what id the factror considering i will be paying for the freight in revenue mt

                              For one piece, they will "square up" cross section and charge for a volume of 0.457 m x 0.457 m x 12.0 m = 2.51 m. The total weight is 139 kg/m x 12 m = 1668 kg.
                              This is about 666 kg/m

                              I don't know about storage. For shipping, different methods use different "trip points" for switching between volume and weight charges. Air is pretty standard at 167 kg/m, truck and sea are less standard but often 333 kg/m and 1000 kg/m. The "cube weight" would be the volume from above multiplied by that "trip point" density. Using the numbers above, air and truck would be weight, sea would be cube-weight. For storage, you'll have to ask.

                              Since pipe doesn't completely fill the volume calculated above, for multiple pieces, there may be a bit of a volume reduction depending on how the pieces pack together, maybe 10% in a large shipment.
