a cubic metere of what?. it depends on the density
Cubic measurements are volume. Tons are weight (or mass). . The answer above implies that it is not possible to convert Cubic metres to metric tonnes which is not true. I…t can be done and it is very simple, also Weight is not the same thing as mass. Weight is the result of the effect of gravity on mass and as such is variable. Mass is a fixed value. eg. 1 gramme of water has both a mass (density) and a weight of 1 gramme at 1G (1G = the gravity of the earth) So as there are 1,000,000 cubic centimeters in 1 cubic metre 1 cubic metre of water weighs 1000kg or 1 metric tonne. 1gramme x 1,000,000/1000 The calculation can only be done if you know the density of the material. The density of a substance is defined in grammes per cubic centimetre. Once you know the mass of a substance (its weight per CC) it is simple. No complex calculations are needed, eg. Lead has a mass (weight) of 11.43g/cc. All that is needed is to replace the little g with tonnes per cubic metre eg 11.43 tonnes per cubic metre. Or if you need it in kilogrammes 11,430 kg/m3 You could multiply the density by 1 million and divide the result by 1000 to get the weight in kg and divide that by 1000 to get metric tonnes per cubic metre but why take the long way round.
That's like asking how many cups are in a pound. Cubic meter is a measure of volume. Metric ton is a measure of mass. They are not convertible.
The answer will depend on the material. Feathers? Wood? Depleted uranium?
With dry sand. 1.602 tonnes
it is not exact but 2 dumpy bags 0.8x0.8x0.8x2=1 cube,I believethey weigh a ton each.
A ton is a unit of mass. A cubic metre is a unit of volume. The two units are therefore incompatible.
A tonne is a measure of weight A cubic meter is a measure of volume There is no direct conversion. They are related by the density of the substance, the greater the den…sity, the smaller 1 tonne will take up, for example 1 tonne of Hydrogen takes about 11000 m 3 whereas 1 tonne of mercury takes about 0.074 m 3 .
Depends on what it's a cubic meter of. A cubic meter of hay will be much lighter than a cubic meter of sand.
multiply by the density in tonnes per cubic meter.
1 metric ton = 1,000 kilograms How much volume (space) it occupies depends on what substance it is.
Marble has a density of 2 563kgm -3 . A tonne is a megagram, or 1 000kg. so 1m 3 weighs 2 563kg, or 2.563 tonne.
It depends on the density of the substance.
There is no sensible answer to the question. A ton is a measure of mass. A cubic metre is a measure of volume. The two measure different things and, according to basic princip…les of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid. If you are not convinced, consider a cubic metre of air. How many tons? Next consider a cubic metre of lead. How many tons?
