  • Tons to Cubic Metre

    I need to convert tons to cubic metres and I can't find that conversion anywhere. Can anyone help?

    Re: Tons to Cubic Metre

    It depends on the substance. Every substance will have a different weight to volume conversion factor.

    If you post the substance I may be able to look up the data.

      The substance I'm looking at is MTBE. It has a specific gravity of .74 g/cm3. And I need to convert 1 ton to 1 m3.

        It just so happens that gram/cubic centimeter is the same as tonne/cubic meter.

        So something with a density of 0.74 gram/cubic centimeter you would:

        tonne / 0.74 = cubic meters
        cubic meters * 0.74 = tonnes

          what is the value of cubic metre to tons?
          or how many cubic metre in 1 ton?
          or how many tons in 1 cubic metre?

                loose dry gravel has a density of about 95 pounds/cubic foot, wet is about 125 pounds/cubic foot.

                1 ton = 2000 pounds
                2000 pounds / 95 pounds/cubic foot = 21 cubic foot
                21 cubic foot = 0.6 cubic meter

                            The closest thing I could find was concrete gravel, it has a density of 2.4 tonne/cubic meter.

                            cubic meter * 2.4 = tonne
                            tonne / 2.4 = cubic meter

                            15 cubic meter * 2.4 tonne/cubic meter = 36 tonne
