Q:
# What is the formula to convert cubic yards into tons?

A:
### Quick Answer

**If the density of pound per cubic foot is known, then one formula is to multiply the density by 0.0135 (27/2000).** Another rule of thumb is cubic yards x 1.4 = tons. The formula varies according to the material type and density.

It is a difficult conversion to calculate, because cubic yards are volumetric measurements and tons are weight measurements. The bulk density will determine the weight per cubic yard. Calculators can be found on the web to assist in completing this type of conversion, such as the one available at unitconversion.org.

Q:
## How do you convert cubic meters to tons?

A:Cubic meters, which measure volume, are converted to tons, which measure mass, by multiplying the number of cubic meters of a substance by its density in units of cubic meters per ton. Density is a physical property defined as the mass of a substance per unit volume.
