1 ton = 2000 pounds. divide the weight by the number of pounds in a ton. the answer would be 1.5 tons per cubic yard.

Multiply tons by 1,529.11 to get pounds per cubic yard:* 3.3 x 1,529.11 = 5,046.063 pounds per cubic yard

You cannot do that since cubic yard is volume and square foot is area. You need to know the thickness

1 kg = 2.2 pounds 1 yard = 3 feet 1 cubic yeard = 27 cubic feet 10 kg/cubic yard = 10 (kg/cub yard) x 2.2 (pounds/kg) x 1/27 (cub yard/cub foot) = 10 x 2.2/27 pounds/cubic foot

It would depend on what you are measuring. A cubic yard of mulch is lighter than a cubic yard of gravel.

The weight of a cubic yard of trash will depend on what the trash is composed of. For example, a cubic yard of paper weighs about 568 pounds, while a cubic yard of aluminum cans weighs about 63 pounds.

Start with a conversion factor. An "old timer's" view is that a cubic foot of dry sand weighs about 125 pounds. There are 3 feet in a yard. There are 3 x 3 or 9 square feet in a square yard. There are 3 x 3 x 3 or 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard. As there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard and there are 125 pounds to a cubic foot of our dry sand, there are 27 x 125 pounds of dry sand per cubic yard, or 3,375 pounds of dry sand per cubic yard. (Yes, there are that many.) There are 2,240 pounds in an Imperial ton. There are 3,375 divided by 2,240 Imperial tons in a cubic yard of dry sand, or right at 1.5 Imperial tons of dry sand per cubic yard. To convert cubic yards of dry sand to Imperial tons, multiply the number of cubic yards of dry sand by 1.5 and your answer will appear. Every time.

1 cubic foot = 1/27 cubic yard

Multiply by 0.037

1 cubic yard = 0,764 554 9 cubic meter

about 2700 pounds per cubic yard
