Best Answer

There is no simple equivalence.

Generally a yard is a measure of length and so has no mass whatsoever. However, in the building trade a "yard" is used to refer to a cubic yard which is then a volume and so would have a mass.

However, a pound as a measure of mass and a yard, as a measure of volume are measures of two different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid.

If you are not convinced, consider a cubic yard of air. How many pounds? Next consider a cubic yard of cement. How many pounds?

The masses of equal volumes of the two substances will clearly be very different. So there is no direct conversion between mass and volume: you need to know the density of the substance to enable you to carry out the conversion.

1 Yard does not equal any lbs; Yard is used for measuring distance. Lbs is used for measuring weight.

A cubic foot of cottonseed weighs approximately 30 to 40 lbs., depending on whether it is delinted. A cubic yard is 27 cubic feet, so therefore about 810 lbs. to 1,008 lbs. per cubic yard.

1 kg per square meter = 1.84 lbs per square yard 1 lbs per square yard = 0.54 kg per square meter

4050 lbs

What is the weight of one cubic yard of cement? If you are asking the weight of 1 cubic yard of CONCRETE it is approximately 2 tons or 4000 pounds per cubic yard when wet.

how many yards are in a ton of wood chips 2000 pounds equals a ton 500 lbs equals one yard 4 yards equals one ton 9000 lbs equals 4.5 tons not 2.5 tons (typo error)

a yard of concrete can weigh from 2000 to 3500 lbs. The weight difference is because of the water, sand, and gravel mixture being different for different types of concrete.

Wet concrete is approximately 150 pounds per cubic foot. So 80 pounds is approximately 1/50 th of a cubic yard.
