This tool will help you calculate the weight of stones in tons.

## How to Use the Stone Calculator

To use this stone calculator, follow these steps:

- Enter the length of the area in feet.
- Enter the width of the area in feet.
- Enter the depth of the area in inches.
- Enter the density of the stone in pounds per cubic foot (lbs/ft³).
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the result in tons.

## How It Calculates

The calculator determines the weight of the stone by following these steps:

- Calculates the volume of the area in cubic feet.
- Converts the depth from inches to feet by dividing by 12.
- Multiplies the volume by the density to get the total weight in pounds.
- Converts the weight from pounds to tons by dividing by 2000.

## Limitations

Please note the following limitations of this calculator:

- It assumes that the depth is evenly spread across the entire area, which may not be the case in real-world scenarios.
- The density of the material must be known and correctly entered to get an accurate result.
- The calculator does not account for any other materials that might be mixed with the stone, such as soil or other debris.
- Measurement inaccuracies can affect the final result, so double-check all measurements before calculating.
