Calculations


For quantities needed:

Width x Length x Thickness (in feet) = Cubic Feet

Cubic Feet / 27 = Cubic Yards

 

Cubic Yards x 1.4 = tons

 

For thickness less than one foot, the following is helpful:

L (in feet) x W (in feet) x F = tons for chosen depth

2 0.0086
3 0.013
4 0.017
5 0.022
6 0.026
7 0.030
8 0.034

12 0.052

 

 

To convert gallons to tons:

Gallons / 216 x 1.4 = tons

 

EXAMPLE: 10,000 gallons / 2016 x 1.4 = 64.82 tons
