**◆ Steps for cement mortar calculation for plastering are following:-**

1) calculate surface area of plaster work

2) calculate dry volume of mortar needed

3) calculate quantity of cement

4) calculate quantity of sand

**Cement mortar calculation for internal plastering**

Suppose length of room = 10ft

Width of room = 10 ft

Area of plaster = 10×10=100 sq ft

Four easy calculation we should convert square feet into square metre

1sq ft = 0.0929 m2

100 sq ft = 100×0.0929 = 9.29 m2

Internal plastering thickness = 12 mm = 0.012m

Now volume = 9.29× 0.012 =0.11148 m3

Consider 20% extra volume of cement mortar used for joint filling and rough side surface and wastage

20% of 0.11148 = 0.022296 m3

Now total wet volume = 0.11148+ 0.022296

Wet volume = 0.133776 m3

Dry volume = wet volume× 1.33

Dry volume = 0.133776× 1.33= 0.278 m3

And mix ratio is 1:5 in which one part is cement and 5 part is sand and total proportion = 1+5 =6

**◆ Cement mortar calculation for plastering**

Density of cement = 1440 kg/m3

One bag cement = 50 kg

Weight = volume × density

Weight of cement in kg

= (1× 0.178 m3 ×1440 kg/m3)/6= 42.701 kg
