How to convert 1 cubic yard of water to tonnes?

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 tonnes 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 mcf is the conversion factor to convert from tonne to kilogram (table near the end of this page) and vcf is the conversion factor to convert from cubic yard to cubic meters.

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

mass = 1000 × 1 × 0.7645551000

mass = 764.5551000

mass = 0.764555 tonne (answer)
