Calculating the volume of cement bags in cubic meter, cubic feet, & in liters.

Cement bags

As you know, the density of cement is 1440 kg/cum.

The weight of one bag of cement is 50 kg.

From density, we know that 1440 kg of cement will be one cum. by volume.

To get the volume of 1 bag of cement in cu.m., we will divide 50kg. by the density of the cement.

        i.e.        50 kg ÷1440 kg/cu.m.
         
                    = 0.03472 cu.m


Since 1 cu.m is equal to 1000 liters,

The volume of one bag of cement in liters

                 =0.03472×1000
                
                 =      34.7 liters.


Similarly, the volume of cement bag in cu.ft.

               =0.03472×35.315
              
               =   1.226 cu.ft. 

(as 1 cu.m =35.315 cu.ft.).
