hi,

i hope some body can help me with my problem computing this.

how can i compute cubic meters to pounds?

Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

You are missing on vital item for you conversion. Cubic meters of WHAT? If you think about it, a cubic meter of feathers is going to be a lot lighter than a cubic meter of concrete. What you will need is a conversion factor - the Density - of the material. Usually this is called the specific gravity, and is in the units of grams per cubic centimeter.

If you'll let me know what you need to convert, I'll see if I can't point you to finding the specific gravity, and from their, the weight of the volume.

1 cubic meter of loose dry coarse river sand into pounds

On average, dry sand weighs approximately 60 pounds per cubic foot.

There are 27 cubic feet per cubic yard.

60 x 27 = 1620 pounds per cubic yard.

From this website, 1 cubic yard = 0.7646 m^3, so

1620 pounds per cubic yard x 0.7646 m^3/yd^3 = 1238 pounds per m^3
