# How many bags of concrete do i need for a 10×10 slab

To calculate how many bags of concrete you need for an 10×10 slab, you’ll first need to determine the thickness of the slab you want. Standard concrete slabs are typically 4 inches thick, but you may want a different thickness depending on your project.

Concrete is a blended mix of Portland cement, sand, aggregate, water with approve ingredient. Cement is acts as binder or adhesive materials to bind the components of concrete all together to create workable paste. Sand acts as filler material that fills the voids and gap between components of concrete and remove the air. Aggregate, stone, or gravel used to strengthen the concrete strength.

To determine how many bags of premixed concrete you will need, divide the total cubic yards needed by the yield. Use the following yields per each bag size: A 40 pound bag yields 0.011 cubic yards, 60 pound bag yields 0.017 cubic yards, 50 pound bag yields 0.0138 cubic yards and 80 pound bag yields 0.022 cubic yards.

If you measure their yields in cubic feet, then yields per each bag size are following: A 40 pound bag yields 0.30 cubic feet, 60 pound bag yields 0.45 cubic feet, 50 pound bag yields 0.375 cubic feet and 80 pound bag yields 0.60 cubic feet.

To figure the amount of yards of concrete you will need, take the all measurements Length in feet, width in feet and thickness in inches. Convert thickness in feet. Multiply its length, width and thickness to get cubic footage. Multiply the total cubic footage by 0.037 to get total yards of concrete needed.

## How many bags of concrete do i need for a 10×10 slab

The amount of concrete you need for a 10×10 slab depends on how thick it will be. So, for a 4-inch slab you’ll need 1.23 cubic yards (56 80lb bags), a 5-inch slab requires 1.54 yards (70 80lb bags) and a 6-inch slab requires 1.85 yards (84 80lb bags).

### How many bags of concrete do i need for a 10×10 slab at 3 inches thick

At 3 inches thick, for a 10×10 slab you would need approximately either 42 80-Pound, 56 60-pound, or 84 40-pound bags of premixed concrete. If you measure in yards, 0.925 cubic yards (25 cubic feet) of concrete will be required.

Let’s do calculation and proceeds following steps:

● 3″ thickness in feet = 3/12 = 0.25′
● Volume of concrete in cubic feet = 10 × 10 × 0.25 = 25 cubic feet
● Volume of concrete in yards = 25 × 0.037 = 0.925 yards.
● No. of 80lb bags = 25/0.60 = 42 bags
● No. of 60lb bags = 25/0.45 = 56 bags
● No. of 40lb bags = 25/0.30 = 84 bags.

Let’s do calculation and proceeds following steps:

● 4″ thickness in feet = 4/12 = 0.333′
● Volume of concrete in cubic feet = 10 × 10 × 0.33 = 33 cubic feet
● Volume of concrete in yards = 33 × 0.037 = 1.23 yards.
● No. of 80lb bags = 33/0.60 = 56 bags
● No. of 60lb bags = 33/0.45 = 74 bags
● No. of 40lb bags = 33/0.30 = 110 bags.

### How many bags of concrete do i need for a 10×10 slab at 5 inches thick

At 5 inches thick, for a 10×10 slab you would need approximately either 70 80-Pound, 93 60-pound, or 139 40-pound bags of premixed concrete. If you measure in yards, 1.54 cubic yards (41.7 cubic feet) of concrete will be required.

Let’s do calculation and proceeds following steps:

● 3″ thickness in feet = 5/12 = 0.417′
● Volume of concrete in cubic feet = 10 × 10 × 0.417 = 41.7
● Volume of concrete in yards = 41.7 × 0.037 = 1.54 yards.
● No. of 80lb bags = 41.7/0.60 = 70 bags
● No. of 60lb bags = 41.7/0.45 = 93 bags
● No. of 40lb bags = 41.7/0.30 = 139 bags.

### How many bags of concrete do i need for a 10×10 slab at 6 inches thick

At 6 inches thick, for a 10×10 slab you would need approximately either 84 80-Pound, 112 60-pound, or 167 40-pound bags of premixed concrete. If you measure in yards, 1.85 cubic yards (50 cubic feet) of concrete will be required.

Let’s do calculation and proceeds following steps:

● 6″ thickness in feet = 6/12 = 0.5′
● Volume of concrete in cubic feet = 10 × 10 × 0.5 = 50
● Volume of concrete in yards = 50 × 0.037 = 1.85 yards.
● No. of 80lb bags = 50/0.60 = 84 bags
● No. of 60lb bags = 50/0.45 = 112 bags
● No. of 40lb bags = 50/0.30 = 167 bags

### Here’s are table for how much concrete do i need for a 10×10 slab:

### Cost estimate for a 10×10 slab

Typically for the most part, the typical concrete slab price range of \$4 to \$8 per square foot includes labor. A 10×10 slab is a 100 square foot. Using ready-mix concrete to cover 10×10 (100 sq ft) at a depth from 4″ to 8″, the estimated cost is range between \$400 to \$800 (since 100× \$4 = \$400 or 100×\$8 = \$800).

#### How much does a 10’×10’×4″ concrete slab cost?

A 4″ thick slab will cost an average cost of \$4 per square foot. Based on the national average, a 10’×10’×4″ (100 square feet) concrete slab may cost about \$400 (since 100 times \$4 = \$400).

#### How much does a 10’×10’×5″ concrete slab cost?

A 5″ thick slab will cost an average cost of \$5 per square foot. Based on the national average, a 10’×10’×5″ (100 square feet) concrete slab may cost about \$500 (100 times \$5 = \$500).

#### How much does a 5’×10’×6″ concrete slab cost?

A 6″ thick slab will cost an average cost of \$6 per square foot. Based on the national average, a 10’×10’×6″ (100 square feet) concrete slab may cost about \$600 (100 times \$6 = \$600).

#### How much does a 10’×10’×8″ concrete slab cost?

A 8″ thick slab will cost an average cost of \$8 per square foot. Based on the national average, a 10’×10’×8″ (100 square feet) concrete slab may cost about \$800 (100 times \$8 = \$800).

Conclusions:

If you have a 10×10 slab with 4″ thick, you would need approximately either 55- 80lb, or 74- 60lb (1.23 yards, or 33 cubic feet) bags of premixed concrete which will cost an average of \$400 including labour.
