Cubic Yards to Tons Calculator | Accurate Conversion

This tool converts cubic yards to tons, making it easy for you to determine weight from volume.

How to Use the Calculator

To use this calculator, enter the number of cubic yards of material you have into the first input field. Then, enter the density of the material (in tons per cubic yard) into the second input field. Click the “Calculate” button to see the result in tons.

How it Calculates the Results

This calculator multiplies the amount of cubic yards by the material’s density to give a result in tons. The formula used is:

Total Tons = (Cubic Yards) * (Material Density)


This calculator assumes a constant density value across the entire volume of material. Variations in material composition or moisture content can result in inaccurate readings. Always consult with a professional for precise measurements and calculations.
