## Why to convert weight of cement into volume?

For any construction site, we need to calculate the volume of materials for the estimation of cost. Here I am going to calculate the volume of one bag cement in meter cube.

Cement is the most essential materials of construction. Without cement, it will be very difficult to construct hard and durable structures in modern-day.

But, we know cement is packed in a bag whose weight remains 50 kg. Here I am going to show you how to convert 1 bag of cement ie. 50 kg of cement into volume.

## Grade of cement

Cement are found in different grade, grade-33, grade-44, grade-54 etc. OPC (Ordinary Portland Cement) found in three grades as above but PPC (Portland Pozzolana Cement) found in only one grade which is approximate equals to grade-33 of OPC cement.

PPC is more durable and environmentally friendly than OPC.

## Volume of one bag cement / 50 kg cement

## Numerical for volume of cement

We have following data for cement,

#### Mass of one bag of cement

50 Kg for one Bag

#### Density of cement

1440 kg/ meter cube

Now, we need to calculate volume of one bag of cement.

So,

Volume of Cement: = Mass/ Density

=50/1440

**= 0.0347 m3 **

Also you can convert this volume from cubic meter to cubic feet,

Just you have to multiply the volume of 1 bag of cement by 35.3147.

So,

1 cum cement = 35.3147 cuf

= 0.0347 cumec Cement

=0.0347* 35.3147

**= 1.225 cft**

Hence,

Volume of cement in meter cube = **= 0.0347 m3**

Volume of cement in meter cube **= 1.225 feet cube**

So, friends in this way you can convert weight of cement in volume.
