To determine how many 50-pound bags of concrete make a yard, you need to know that there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard. To find out how many bags are needed, you can use the following formula: Number of Bags = (Cubic Yards × 27) / Yields per Bag in cubic feet. In this case, the weight per bag is 50 pounds and their yields is about 0.375 cubic feet. Number of Bags = (1 cubic yard × 27) / 0.375 cubic feet. Number of Bags = 27 / 0.375. Number of Bags ≈ 72 bags. So, it takes approximately 72 (or seventy-two) of a 50-pound bag of concrete to make 1 cubic yard of concrete.

Concrete bags or ready mix concrete is made of blended mix of Portland cement, sand, gravel and other approved ingredient. Generally, dry ready mix concrete are available in different bag size and different weight condition like 40-pound bag, 60-pound bag, 80-pound bag 90-pound bag and 50-pound bag.

In general speaking, generally one bag of Sakrete or Quikrete concrete weighs about a 50-pound and which yields about 0.375 cubic feet or 0.0138 cubic yards volume and will cover approximately 2 square feet at 2 inches deep, and which costs about $3.5 per bag.

Weight of concrete bag in dry condition is about 133-pound per cubic foot, 3,600-pound per cubic yard, or 2,136 kilograms per cubic meter. The weight of concrete is determined by its density, which can vary based on the amount of sand, aggregate, water, and air in the mix.

There are 27 cubic feet of concrete in one cubic yard. In United States, based on Imperial measurement system, 1 cubic yard is unit of measurement of volume represented by 3 feet long by 3 feet wide by 3 feet depth (3’×3’×3′ = 27 cubic feet), so 1 cubic yard of concrete is equal to 27 cubic feet.

One yard of concrete looks like a heap of 3 feet long by 3 feet wide by 3 feet high, 3’×3’×3′ = 27, which is equal as 27 cubic feet. One bag of 50lb yields about 0.375 cubic feet, so number of 50lb bags in a yard = 27÷0.374 = 72 50-pound bag, or it will take 72 bags of 50lb concrete to make one yard of concrete.

Concrete Mix (50-pound Bag) Quikrete or Sakrete High-Strength Concrete Mix is a preblended mixture of sand, coarse aggregate, and cementitious materials. Each 50-pound bag of Quikrete Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.375 cubic feet of mixed concrete. For one yard of concrete, you will need 27 cubic feet of concrete, or 72 50-pound bags.

**How many 50lb bags of concrete make a yard**

In general speaking there are 72 bags of 50lb (pound) Quikrete or Sakrete fast setting concrete per yard. One 50lb bag of Quikrete or Sakrete Concrete Mix will yield approximately 0.375 cubic feet (10.6 liters). So it will take 72 bags of 50-pound to make one cubic yard of concrete.

To calculate number of 50lb bags of concrete to make one yard, divide the 27 cubic feet (volume of 1 yard concrete) by yields of one 60-pound bag concrete in cubic feet. So, formula to calculate number of 50lb bags of concrete per yard = 27 cubic feet volume ÷ 0.375 cubic feet = 72 bags, so it will take 72 bags of 50lb to equal one cubic yard of concrete.

**Steps to calculate 50-pound bag concrete per yard are following:-**

● One yard of bag concrete yields 27 cubic feet and weight about 3,600-pound.

● One bag of concrete weighs about 50-pound which yields 0.0138 cubic yards, such as 50/3,600 = 0.0138 cubic yards, which is equal as 0.375 cubic feet, 0.0138 × 27 = 0.375 cubic feet

● Formula to calculate number of 50-pound bags of concrete for one yard = 27 cubic feet volume ÷ 0.375 cubic feet = 72 bags

● So, it will take 72 bags of 50-pound to equal one cubic yard of concrete.

**How many 50lb bags of concrete in a yard**

To produce one yard of concrete, you would need to use about 72 50-pound bags of concrete. Thus, 72 bags of 50lb concrete equates to one cubic yard of concrete. One yard bag concrete weighs about 3,600 pound, and one 50 lb bag concrete weighs about 50-pound, so, number of 50-pound bags of concrete in a yard = 3,600 ÷ 50 = 72 bags.

**How many cubic feet in an 50lb bag of concrete**

Quikrete’s or Sakrete Concrete Mix yield’s about 0.15 cubic feet for every 20 pounds of mix, so, each 50-pound bag of QUIKRETE or Sakrete Concrete Mix will yield approximately 0.375 cubic feet when mixed. 1 cubic foot of concrete weighs about 133 pound, so amount of cubic feet in each 50 pound bag of concrete = 50 ÷ 133 = 0.375 cubic feet.

**How many cubic yards in an 50lb bag of concrete**

Each 60-pound bag of QUIKRETE or Sakrete Concrete Mix will yield approximately 0.0138 cubic yards when mixed. 1 cubic yard of concrete weighs about 3,600 pound, so amount of cubic yards in each 50-pound bag of concrete = 50 ÷ 3,600 = 0.0138 cubic yards.

**How many 50lb bags of concrete does it take to make one Yard**

There are 72 bags of 50lb (pound) Quikrete or Sakrete concrete per yard. One 50lb bag of Quikrete or Sakrete Concrete Mix will yield approximately 0.375 cubic feet (10.6 liters) and 1 yard equals 27 cubic feet. So it will take 72 bags of 50-pound to make one cubic yard of concrete. Calculation: 27 ÷ 0.375 = 72 bags.

**Conclusion:-**

There are 72 bags of 50lb (pound) Quikrete or Sakrete concrete per yard. One 50lb bag of Quikrete or Sakrete Concrete Mix will yield approximately 0.375 cubic feet (10.6 liters). So it will take 72 bags of 50-pound to make one cubic yard of concrete.
