# How many yards is 20 tons of dirt in feet

How many yards is 20 tons of dirt in feet depends on the, dry or wet condition, the density and types of the dirt or topsoil. The dirt may be fill dirt that’s filtered for construction application and doesn’t contain any organic matter, or may be topsoil, clayed soil, sandy soil.

A cubic yard of fill dirt (dirt that’s filtered for construction use and doesn’t contain any organic matter) is slightly heavier and weighs about 2,150 pounds (980 kilograms). If the topsoil is dry and sandy, it can weigh around 2,600 pounds (1,200 kilograms) per cubic yard. Clay soil is lighter at around 1,700 pounds (770 kilograms) per cubic yard.

One cubic yard of dirt is a unit of volume that measures 3 feet in length × 3 feet in height × 3 feet wide. So one cubic yard of dirt = 3’×3’×3′ = 27 cubic feet, thus it is equivalent to 27 cubic feet or approximately 764.6 liters. One ton of dirt weighs about 2,000 lb, so 20 tons of dirt weighs around 40,000 pounds.

The density of dirt per cubic yard can vary, but for estimation purpose, Builders would take it 1.25 US tons per cubic yard or 2,500 pounds per cubic yard. Means a cubic yard (27 cubic feet) of dirt weighs approximately 2,500 lb or 1.25 US tons.

## How many yards is 20 tons of dirt in feet

Converting tons of dirt to cubic yards depends on the density of the dirt. However, for estimation purposes, a common density for dirt is about 1.25 tons per cubic yard. Using this, 20 tons of dirt would be roughly 16 cubic yards (20 tons / 1.25 tons per cubic yard) or 432 cubic feet (since 16 × 27 = 432 cubic feet).

If you want to convert tons of dirt to yard, use the formula:-1 ton of dirt = 0.8 cubic yards of dirt. Using this formula, you can figure the yards of dirt from any tons amount, what ever given. For example, 10 tons of dirt would be 8 cubic yards (since 10×0.8 = 8 yards).

How many yards is 1 ton of dirt? 1 tons of dirt would be generally about 0.8 cubic yards (1 tons /1.25 tons per cubic yard) or approximately 22 cubic feet (since 0.8 × 27 = 22 cubic feet). So, 1 ton of dirt will cover 0.62 cubic meters, or 22 cubic feet, or 0.80 cubic yards.

Since, 1 ton of dirt would be roughly about 0.8 cubic yards, so, 22 tons of dirt would be 17.6 cubic yards or approximately 475 cubic feet. Likewise, 25 tons of dirt would be 20 cubic yards or approximately 540 cubic feet, while 10 tons of dirt would be 8 cubic yards or approximately 216 cubic feet. In addition, 2 tons of dirt would be 1.6 yards, 3 tons of dirt- 2.4 yards, 5 tons of dirt- 4 yards, and 6 tons of dirt would be 4.8 cubic yards.

### How many tons is 10 yards of dirt

Converting cubic yards of dirt to tons depends on the density of the dirt. However, for estimation purposes, a common density for dirt is about 1.25 tons per cubic yards. Using this, 10 yards of dirt would be roughly 12.5 tons (since 10 yards × 1.25 tons per yard = 12.5 tons) or approximately 25,000 pounds.

If you want to convert cubic yards of dirt to tons, use the formula:-1 cubic yard of dirt = 1.25 tons of dirt. Using this formula, you can figure the amount of tons of dirt from any cubic yards, what ever given, select the yards of dirt to how much tons of dirt would be required.

Since, 1 cubic yard of dirt would be roughly about 1.25 tons, so 20 yards of dirt would be 25 tons. Likewise, 12 yards of dirt- 15 tons, 5 yards of dirt- 6.25 tons, 3 yards of dirt- 3.75 tons, 18 yards of dirt- 22.5 tons, 4 yards of dirt- 5 tons, 100 yards of dirt- 125 tons, 15 yards of dirt- 18.75 tons, and 150 cubic yards of dirt would be 188 tons.

Conclusion:-

Converting tons of dirt to cubic yards depends on the density of the dirt. However, a common approximation is that 1 ton of dirt is roughly equivalent to 0.8 cubic yards. Therefore, 20 tons of dirt would be around 16 cubic yards or approximately 432 cubic feet.
