In this article I am going to show you how to calculate weight of a cubic foot of dirt in Pounds and Kg. We will calculate the weight of dirt per cubic foot and then dirt weight per cubic yard.

We know that dirt is land escaping material and used to fill the gap or void of the land and when it is mix with gravel and cement, it make concrete to construct different structure like buildings, bridges, canals and Roads.

There are different factor which determine the weight of dirt per cubic feet or yard. The most considerable factor that determine the weight of dirt is dry and weight condition i.e the moisture content of dirt, types and the grain size or particle size.

To determine the weight of dirt we must have value for weight of dirt per cubic yard. The unit weight of dry dirt per yard is about 2,100 pound and the weight of wet dirt per cubic yard is about 2700 pounds.

Now, you know that the 1 cubic yard is equal to multiple of 3 foot in length, 3 foot in width, and 3 foot in height which will be equal to 27 cubic feet. Remember, 1 cubic yard of material equal as 27 cubic feet.

## Weight of a cubic foot of dirt in Pounds and Kg

Here, Weight of dry dirt in pound per cubic feet will be equals to 2100 divided by 27 cubic foot which is equals to around 77.7 pounds/cubic feet.

Similarly, Weight of wet dirt in pound per cubic feet will be equal to 2700 divided by 27 which is equal to around 100 pounds/cubic feet.

## Now, how much does a cubic foot of dirt weight?

If we need weight of dry dirt and wet dirt in kg per cubic foot, then, Simply divide pounds value by **2.205**.

Therefore,

Weight of dry dirt in kg/cubic feet = 77.7/2.205 = **35.23 Kg/cubic feet**

Weight of wet dirt in kg/cubic feet = 100/2.205 = **45.35 Kg/cubic feet**

Hence, it means dirt weight ranges between** 77.7 to 100 pounds per cubic foot** depending upon different factors.
