A ton is a measure of weight, whereas a cubic meter is a measure of volume, so the material must be known to be able to convert the units. One ton of pure water is equal to 1 cubic meter. More » Science Measurements

Converting liters to tons involves two major steps. The first is to convert the liters to cubic meters. The second step is to convert the cubic meters to tons (basically using density at this stage). More » Science Measurements

One cubic meter of soil weighs between 1.2 and 1.7 metric tonnes, or between 1,200 and 1,700 kilograms. These metric figures convert to between 2,645 and 3,747 pounds, or between 2.6 tons and 3.7 tons, per cubic meter. L... More » Science Measurements

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 defi... More » Science Measurements

A ton is a measurement of weight, and a cubic yard is a measurement of volume. The number of tons that a given cubic yard of material weighs depends on the material. More » Science Measurements

Obtain a cubic meter measurement by calculating the volume of an object using length x width x height. The volume of a cube that’s 1 meter long, 1 meter wide and 1 meter high is demonstrated in the equation: 1m x 1m x 1m... More » Science Measurements

The number of liters in a ton depends on the density of the liquid, because liters are units of volume and tons are units of mass. For water, 1000 liters would make up a ton. More » Science Measurements
