I think no because the blocks would be too heavy to weigh.
I would like to build a new patio with concrete pavers. Where can I find them at?
would a scale that is used to weigh food be the best tool to weigh concrete blocks
No because if there were to be an earthquake, it would be gone and concrete is not very stable foundation.
That depends on your materials. Bricks and blocks tend to be rectangles. Concrete can be any shape you would like.
The tower would be bolted down to heavy concrete blocks sunk into the ground.
I've never heard the phrase before, but would guess it means sitting on concrete blocks and anchored to the concrete pad with cables or chains.
The answer depends on the size of the cement blocks which are not an international standard.
you could but it would be rather uncomfortable! You could build the base out of concrete if your floor would support it but you would want a mattress with a lot more give. Regarding the heavy concrete base, I hear that far lighter types of concrete are now being made using ash and extruded styrene instead of sand in the concrete and with glass fibre or vegetable fibre instead of steel armature. It sounds like a good idea - the base wouldn't creak.
Concrete does dry as it solidifies, but the water used in the mix does not evaporate and leave the remaining components of the concrete in place as a solid. When concrete sets the water chemically reacts with the solids and is incorporated into the now solid material. The main problem with the setting of the concrete in Hoover Dam was to remove the heat generate in the setting process. The concrete was poured in such thick blocks that the internal temperature would have risen to damaging levels without special procedures to remove this heat. Coolant was circulated through pipes laid in the concrete to remove this heat.
Depends on mortared or dry. Mortared it would be 37, or actually 36.4. Dry stacked it would be 38, or 37.5.
it would extend off of there main basement and it would be made from cinder blocks
15 blocks. The same steps can be used for going up or down!
they would make it with different things such as concrete stone wood and sometimes even marble
No. It was poured in 25 foot rectangular blocks, so each block would cure before pouring the next.
Casing Blocks were laid on top of the main blocks used to build a pyramid. They were trimmed so the outer surface would be smooth and the same color. They are no longer used today, because pyramids are no longer being built.
You can, but it is very difficult. You would need to build up enough soil on top of the concrete, to support a healthy root system. The other thing to consider it water drainage, which with concrete you would likely have to water every day.
An 80 pound bag of premix concrete will make .6 cubic feet of cured concrete. There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic meter, so it would take 45 80 pound bags to make one cubic meter.
The pharaoh's paid farmers to work on the pyramid during the off season, when no farming would have been done. A pharaoh would offer money to a team of people who would build the pyramids using basic tools, and they would pull the stone blocks using oxen.
Kings as there was nothing else to build with in the 1300s as it was a very long time ago and that was the strongest material to build it with xx by Amber aged 12 xx haha I answered it xx
You would have to walk 10 blocks south and then 5 blocks west or something like that for example 3 blocks west then 5 blocks south then 2 blocks west then 5 blocks south again but it all adds up to be a total of 15 blocks.
Varies depending on the size of the bricks.Paving blocks come in various sizes depending on the type of paving.Standard paving blocks are are of pre cast concrete 100 mm by 200 mm the thickness varies. The heavier the traffic the thicker the blocks.There are however, standard thickness's, 50 mm, 80 mm, and 100 mm are the most common.For instance on a house driveway 50 mm blocks would be the most favoured, whilst on a dockyard which is used by heavy vehicles 100 mm blocks would be the choice.You would need 50 standard blocks to cover one square metre.
6H2O + 6CO2 + sunlight → C6H12O6 (glucose) + 6O2 So the building blocks would be water and carbon dioxide
No, the range of the scale is wrong, the food scale probably has a maximum capacity of one or two pounds, whereas a concrete block weighs about 40 pounds, so the scale can not weigh the block.
17 Blocks altogether
