Convert cubic yards to equivalent US & Metric Tons for different construction materials using the tool below.

This yards to tons calculator quickly convert cubic yards of materials into US tons, metric tonnes, and Pounds relative to their density.

It is a conversion that is used to estimate the weight of a material based on the volume and given density.

It is commonly used in industries such as construction, agriculture, and mining.

The total yards in a single ton depends on the density of the material.

For example, a ton of feathers would occupy a much larger volume than a ton of lead.

Our calculator considers standard densities of the most used construction materials for converting cubic yards to tons. This way, it helps you know how many yards are there in a single or more tons.

Dry Sand Density = 72 Lb/ Cubic Feet

1 Yard = 3 Feet

Then

1 Cubic Yard = 3*3*3 = 27 Cubic Feet

10 Cubic Yard = 270 Cubic Feet

1 Ton = 2000 lb

Weight = 72 * 270 lb

Weight = 1,9440 lb

Weight of Sand in US Tons = 1,9440/2000

Weight of Sand in US Tons = 9.72 US Tons

Weight of Sand in Metric Tons = 1,9440/2200

Weight of Sand in Metric Tons = 8.82 Metric Tons

For practical reasons, several non-metric units are accepted for use like cubic yards to tons (Kenneth S. Butcher, May 2006)

The cubic yard-to-ton conversion table is given below:

Cubic Yard [yd^3] |

0.01 yd^3 | 0.0027 ton reg |

0.1 yd^3 | 0.027 ton reg |

1 yd^3 | 0.27 ton reg |

2 yd^3 | 0.54 ton reg |

3 yd^3 | 0.81 ton reg |

5 yd^3 | 1.35 ton reg |

10 yd^3 | 2.7 ton reg |

20 yd^3 | 5.4 ton reg |

50 yd^3 | 13.5 ton reg |

100 yd^3 | 27 ton reg |

1000 yd^3 | 270 ton reg |
