Measurement Tips

Area

For example paving an area:

AREA= Width (W) x Length (L) = Units 2

Units :- meter X meter = m2

  • 100cm = 1m
  • 10cm = 0.1m

VOLUME:

For example:   Gardening or Concrete Slab

Volume = Area X Height (H) = W X L X H = units 3

Units:   meter 2 (m2) X meter (m) = m X m X m = m3

Comparing Volume m3   to Tonnes 

F/Sand  1m3   = 1.5 TON

G/MIX  1m3   = 1 TON

Concrete Slabs/Pathways   1m= 2 TON (raw material)

Pebbles  1m = 1.8 TON

Example:

Lenth = 3m
Depth = 0.1m (100m)
Width = 5m
3 X 5 X 0.1 = 1.5m
Volume

If you require garden mix :- Hence 1.5m = 1.5 tonnes

If you require a concrete slab :- Hence 1.5m = 3 tonnes
