# Calculate 1 Bag(50kg) Cement Volume in Cubic Feet & Meter

Do you want to know How to calculate 1 Bag(50kg) of cement volume in cubic feet or cubic meters? Then keep eye on this article, I have given a complete explanation of it with mathematical examples. Before jumping into the main topic, you should know that usually, the weight of one bag cement is 50 kg, but in the USA, the weight of one bag cement is 94 Ib which is equal to 43 kg.

## 1 Bag Cement Volume

1. Formula and Unit of Volume.
2. One Bag(50kg) of cement volume in cubic feet and cubic meters.
3. Mathematical Examples.

Let’s know the basic thing that you need to remember before calculating the volume of cement.

Volume refers to the amount of space that an object or substance occupies in three-dimensional space. It is a measurement of the total capacity or size of an object or container.

The formula of Volume: In this case, we will use this formula

M = pV

Where, M = Mass, V = Volume, p = Density.

Unit of Volume: Cubic feet and cubic meters both are units of volume. In most cases, we use these two units to calculate volume. Other units like – liter, gallon, cubic yards, etc. are also used for calculating the volume.

Density of Cement: The density of cement in the MKS system is 1440 kg/m3. The density of cement in the FPS system is 89.89 = 89.9 lb/ft3 (approx.)

1 Bag(50kg) cement volume in cubic meter

From the above formula, we can write,

Volume = Mass/Density

Or, V = M/p

[ Given value, M = 50 Kg, p = 1440 kg/m3 ]

Or, V = 50/1440

Or, V = 0.0347 m3 or cubic meter.

So, the volume of 1 bag of cement is 0.0347 cubic meter.

1 Bag(50kg) cement volume in cubic feet

Volume = Mass/Density

Or, V = M/p

[ Given value, M = 50 Kg = 110.231 pound (Note: 1 kg = 2.20462 pound or Ib), p = 89.9 lb/ft3.]

V = 110.231/89.9

V = 1.226 ft3 or cubic feet.

So, the volume of 1 bag of cement is 1.226 ft3 or cubic feet.

Important Point: If all the units are given into the MKS system i.e. meter and kg, then you do not need to do the second process to calculate volume in cubic feet, you just need to remember this 1 m3 = 35.3147 ft3. If you know this, then just multiply 35.3147 by the volume that comes in cubic meter, which will yield the same volume in cubic feet. Let’s check if the answer is coming the same or not.

The volume of cement in cubic meter is 0.0347 m3, now find the cement volume in cubic feet.

So, as I said above, it will be = 0.0347 *35.314 = 1.225 ft3 or Cubic feet ✅.

Volume of a Cement Bag(50kg) in Litres

We have calculated the volume of cement in two important units – one is cubic feet and the other is cubic meter. Now, we will learn how to calculate the volume of cement in liters.

We know, 1 cubic meter = 1000 liters

So, the volume of a cement bag in liters will be = 1000*0.0347 = 34.7 liters.

Important Notation: 1 cubic meter = 1000 liters = 35.3 cubic feet = 1.31 cubic yards.

Note: The volume of cement depends on the density of the particular cement. There are several types of cement in the market and therefore, the density of the cement also depends on the type of cement.

## Mathematical Examples

Example: How to calculate the volume of 1 bag cement (94 Ib) in cubic feet?

[ Typically, in the USA, one bag of cement weight is 94 Ib, this is the weight of ordinary Portland cement. ]

Solution: Volume = Mass/Density

Or, V = M/p

[ Given value: M = 94 Ib or pounds, p = 89.9 lb/ft3.]

V = 94/89.9

V = 1.04 ft3 or cubic feet

So, the volume of 1 bag of cement (94 Ib) in cubic feet is 1.04.
