To work out the volume you require simply multiply   Width x Length x Depth

Example
5m wide x 3m long x 0.05m(50mm) deep = 0.75m3 = one bag Approx
3m wide x 5m long x 0.1m(100mm) deep = 1.5m3 = two bags Approx To work out the volume of a circle/pond you use

Half the Diameter to give us the radius then
= Volume Example
Diameter is 3m and we need 225mm depth
so divide Diameter 3m by 2 = 1.5m Radius

Then simply multiply 1.5 x 1.5 radius x 3.14 x 0.225(225mm) deep = 1.59m3
= two bags Approx Volume Calculator

Conversion Factors
Volume
cu/YARDS

1m3= 1.3 cubic yards

To convert cubic yards to cubic meters multiply by 0.7646
Example
You have 13 cubic yards so multiply 13 x 0.7646= 10 cubic meters (10m3)

cu/FEET
1m3= 35.3 cubic feet
To convert cubic feet to cubic meters multiply by 0.02832
Example
You have 353 cubic feet so multiply 353 x 0.02832= 10 cubic meters (10m3)

cu/FEET tocu/YARDS
1 cubic yard= 27 cubic feet

To convert cubic feet to cubic yards divide by 27
Example
You have 270 cubic feet so divide 270'/.27= 10 cu/yards (yd3)

Area
sq/FEET
1 square yard= 9 square feet
To convert square feet to square yards divide by 9

Example
You have 90 square feet so divide 90'/.9= 10 sq/yards (yd2)

m2 to yd2
1 square meter=1.19599 square yards
To convert square meters to square yards multiply by1.19599 m2 to yd2 Conversion  Calculator Volume Conversion Calculator Area Conversion Calculator

INCHES
Straight Line Conversion Only  (This is NOT a Volume or Area conversion)
Do not try to use Inches to work out Volume the numbers are too big !

1 Inch= 25.4mm

To convert Inches to millimeters multiply by 25.4
Example
You have 3 Inches so multiply  3 x 25.4= 76.2mm (0.0762m)
