Re: Convert Tons to Cubic Yards

The answer to all your questions is call the quary and ask for the Unit Weight of the product. Once you have the unit weight (lbs/ft3) multiply by the amount of ft^3 you need which is length x width x height and this will tell you how many pounds you need. Then ther are 2000 lbs in a ton so divide by 2000 to get tons. If you know your cubic feet to convert to cubic yards divide by 27 since there are 27ft^3 in a yd^3. Hence 3'x3'x3'=27ft^3. or 1cy
