## Cubic Meter to Ton Converter

**1 cubic metre = 0.883 cubic tons (35.32 cubic feet), use this cubic meter to ton calculator to transform cubic meters (m³) of a material into its weight in tons. **

This conversion is particularly **crucial in industries** such as **construction**, **shipping**, and **mining**, where understanding the relationship between volume and weight is essential for **logistics**, **planning**, and **cost estimation**.

## Cubic Meter to Ton Conversion Formula

The general formula is:

**Weight in tons = Volume in cubic meters × Density in tons per cubic meter**

The conversion formula from **cubic meters** to tons depends on the **density** of the material being measured.

For example, water has a density of **1 ton per cubic meter**, while concrete might have a density of **2.4 tons per cubic meter**.

## How do you convert m³ to metric tons?

To convert cubic meters (m³) to **metric tons**:

**Determine the density**of the material in tons per cubic meter.**Multiply**the volume in cubic meters by the density.

For example, if you have **5 m³ of water**:

$$5 \, m³ \times 1 \, ton/m³ = 5 \, metric \, tons$$

### How many cubic meters are in a ton?

The number of cubic meters in a ton **varies depending on the material**. For water, which has a density of **1 ton per cubic meter**, **1 ton equals 1 cubic meter**.

For other materials, the relationship changes. For instance:

- For
**soil**: approximately**0.75 to 1.25 cubic meters per ton** - For
**gravel**: about**0.6 to 0.7 cubic meters per ton** - For
**sand**: roughly**0.55 to 0.65 cubic meters per ton**

### How to convert cubic meter to ton aggregate?

**Find out**the density of the aggregate (typically ranging from**1.2 to 1.6 tons per cubic meter**).**Multiply**the volume in cubic meters by this density.

For example, if you have **10 m³ of aggregate** with a density of **1.4 tons/m³**:

$$10 \, m³ \times 1.4 \, tons/m³ = 14 \, tons$$

## How many cubic meters is a 1 ton truck?

Generally, a **1-ton truck** can carry about **2.5 to 3 cubic meters** of material.

This can vary based on:

- The
**specific truck model** - The
**density**of the cargo **Legal weight limits**for road transportation

The volume capacity of a **1-ton truck** in cubic meters **depends on the truck’s design** and the material being transported.

It’s always best to consult the truck’s specifications and local regulations for accurate information.

## How many cubic meters are in 1 ton of sand?

On average:

**1 ton of sand ≈ 0.6 to 0.65 cubic meters**

This means that **1 cubic meter of sand** typically weighs between **1.5 to 1.7 tons**.

The number of cubic meters in **1 ton of sand** **varies slightly** depending on the sand’s moisture content and composition.

## 7 cubic meters to tonnes

To convert **7 cubic meters** to tonnes, we need to know the material’s density. Let’s use a few common materials as examples:

**Water**: $$7 \, m³ \times 1 \, ton/m³ = 7 \, tonnes$$**Average soil**: $$7 \, m³ \times 1.3 \, tons/m³ ≈ 9.1 \, tonnes$$**Gravel**: $$7 \, m³ \times 1.6 \, tons/m³ ≈ 11.2 \, tonnes$$

## 35 cubic meters to tonnes

For **35 cubic meters**:

**Water**: $$35 \, m³ \times 1 \, ton/m³ = 35 \, tonnes$$**Average soil**: $$35 \, m³ \times 1.3 \, tons/m³ ≈ 45.5 \, tonnes$$**Gravel**: $$35 \, m³ \times 1.6 \, tons/m³ = 56 \, tonnes$$

## Convert m³ to tonnes aggregate

To convert cubic meters to tonnes for **aggregate**, use the average density of aggregate materials, which is about **1.4 tons per cubic meter**:

**Tonnes of aggregate = Volume in m³ × 1.4 tons/m³**

For example:

**5 m³ of aggregate**≈**7 tonnes****20 m³ of aggregate**≈**28 tonnes****50 m³ of aggregate**≈**70 tonnes**

## Cubic Meter to Ton Conversion Table

Material | Density (tons/m³) | Volume (m³) | Weight (tons) |
---|---|---|---|

Water | 1.0 | 10 | 10.0 |

Sand | 1.6 | 10 | 16.0 |

Gravel | 1.5 | 10 | 15.0 |

Soil | 1.3 | 10 | 13.0 |

Concrete | 2.4 | 10 | 24.0 |

Wood | 0.9 | 10 | 9.0 |

To use this converter:

**Identify**the material and its density.**Input**the volume in cubic meters.**Multiply**the volume by the density to get the weight in tons.

For example, if you need to convert **15 m³ of concrete** to tons:

$$15 \, m³ \times 2.4 \, tons/m³ = 36 \, tons$$
