# How many bags of cement are in 1 cubic yard, 1 cubic metre & one cubic foot

The number of bags of cement needed depends on the size of the bags and the mix ratio, but a common estimate is that one cubic yard typically requires around 13.5 bags (94lb), one cubic meter requires about 10 bags (50kg), and one cubic foot needs approximately 0.5 bags (94 lb) of cement.

Cement is one of the most important construction material used as Binder or glue in manufacturing of concrete, brickwork and plastering. It provide enough strength to concrete.

Portland cement it is made of mixture of limestone and clay heating on highest temperature in cement Mills, also added with some amount of different types of admixture to provide their characteristics feature and its strength.

There is different types of cement grade and their quality available in market, some are of Portland cement of grade 33, 43 and 53, Portland pozzolana cement, Portland slug cement, sulphur resistant cement, etc.

In this article we know about how many bags of cement are in 1 cubic yard, 1 cubic metre & one cubic foot. Here it means only cement, not concrete. As we know number of cement bag needed for 1 cubic yard, 1 cubic metre and 1 cubic feet depends on density of cement and weight of one bag of cement.

## How many bags of cement do i need

How many bags of cement do i need: Typically, with a standard mix ratio of 1:5 you will need approximately 7 x 50kg bags (or 14 x 25kg bags) of cement, plus 2 tonnes of ballast and 160 liters of water per 1m3 of concrete. With a ratio of 1:4, 17 bags of 25 kg cement and 2 tons of ballast are required for 1 m3 of concrete, with a ratio of 1:6 1 m3 of concrete requires 12 bags of 25 kg cement and 2 tons of ballast.

### How many bags of cement are in 1 cubic yard

In Imperial or US customary measurement system, As we know unit weight or density of cement is around 94.0165 pound per cubic foot (lb/ft³), and 1 cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic foot, so weight of 1 cubic yard cement = 94 ×27 = 2538 lb/yd3.

As we know A bag or sack of cement is 94 lb (43 kg) in the United States, others in 80lb, 60lb. number of bags of 94 lb cement in 1 cubic yard = 2538/ 94= 27 bags, number of bags of 80 lb cement in 1 cubic yard = 2538/ 80 = 32 bags and number of bags of 60 lb cement in 1 cubic yard = 2538/ 60 = 42 bags.

Typically, 27 bags of 94 lb cement needed in a cubic Yard and others are 32 bags of 80lb and 42 bags of 60lb cement needed in 1 cubic Yard.

### How many bags of cement are in 1 cubic meter

In Imperial or US customary measurement system, As we know unit weight or density of Portland cement is around 1506kg/m3, it means one cubic meter of cement weighs around 1506kg or 3320 pounds, as we know A bag or sack of cement is 94 lb (43 kg) in the United States, number of bags cement = 3320/94 = approx 35 bags, therefore around 35 bags of 94lb Portland cement will be needed in 1 cubic meter.

In metric system or Indian standard, as we know Unit Weight or density of Portland cement is around 1440kg/m3, it means one cubic meter of cement weight around 1440kg, as we know A bag or sack of cement is 50 kg in india, number of bags cement = 1440/50 = 28.8 bags.

Typically around 28.8 bags of 50kg Portland cement will be needed in 1 cubic meter.
