In Pensacola, FL the mixing plant is currently charging $70 per ton for SP12.5 and about $67 per ton for SP9. Prices link with oil obviously. You can search for asphalt calculator to get a conversion from yd to ton. Materials are priced by weight.

Asphalt installation is usually bid by the square yard, the installer will buy asphalt by the ton, and it will be delivered in a truck measured in cubic yards. Therefore, a volume/weight/area ratio is required. In short, an estimator will typically assume that one square yard of compacted asphalt laid one inch deep will weigh approximately 111 pounds.

The answer is, it depends. Different types of bituminous cement concrete (asphalt hot mix) use different percentages of asphalt cement. In Virginia, base mixes use at least 4.4% asphalt, while surface mixes are up to about 6%. Liquid asphalt is a little heavier than water; it weighs about 9.4#/gallon (depending on the source and grade). Here's the math: Base mix 2000#/ton x 4.4%/9.4#/gal. = 9.36 gal/ton surface mix 2000#/ton x 6%/9.4#/gal. = 12.76 gal/ton hope this answers the question.

It will depend on type of sand ie fine,medium,coarse one cu mt per ton of sand will range between 1.4 ton to 2 ton

It of course depends on the depth. An old rule of thumb is one ton will cover one square yard (3'x3') at 18 inch depth. Of course we don't place it 18 inches deep very often. But if you divide 18 by the number of inches you do plan to lay, it will tell you how many square yards can be covered. For example, at 3" depth, divide 18 by 3 = 6 square yards will be covered. Another way is to calculate the volume you are covering in cubic feet such as 15 feet by 50 feet by 3 inches (0.25'), = total cubic feet. Then divide totl cubic feet by 150 (apprx. wt per cubuc foot of asphalt)=TONS NEEDED

You can't they measure different things.

Sorry, you can only convert 1 metric ton of water to cubic meters (not square meters). Square meters are an area and cubic meters are a volume.

That does not make any sense because a ton is a measurement of weight and a square meter measures a flat area.

The amount of square feet in a ton of asphalt will depend on the thickness of the asphalt. If the asphalt is three inches thick it will have to cover the area three times. The type of asphalt used is also a factor towards weight.

It would depend on how deep you want to lay it.

You have not said what substance you are using a ton of to cover the asphalt.

You needed to specify to what depth the asphalt is being laid.

by 1 ton bitumen 8.19 cubic meter asphalt wearing course could be done.
