How to convert 1 cubic yard of shale to kilograms?

To convert a quantity of a substance or material expressed as a volume to mass we simply use the formula:

mass = density × volume

We want to calculate the mass in kilograms from a volume in cubic yards. We have the density table at the bottom of this web page that shows us the densities values in kg/m³, so we will use the folowing formula (see why below):

mass = d × v × vcfmcf, where vcf is the conversion factor to convert from cubic yard to cubic meters (table near the end of this page) and mcf equals 1 because the mass is already in kiliograms.

So, plugging these values in the formula above, we get:

mass = 2500 × 1 × 0.7645548581

mass = 2500 × 0.764554858, or

mass = 1911.39 kilograms (answer)
