Cubic yards can be converted to tons with the aid of a volume-to-weight conversion table. For instance, 1 cubic yard of uncompacted computer paper weighs approximately 655 pounds. Since 1 ton = 2,240 pounds, 1 cubic yard... More »

The easiest way to calculate a cubic yard of dirt is to first measure the dirt, convert known dimensions into yards, then simply multiply the length, width and height of a section of dirt to get the total cubic area. You... More »

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 »

Convert square feet into yards by multiplying the length of a space by the width of the space to calculate the area of the space. Divide the sum by 9 to arrive at the square yardage of the space. More »
