A cubic foot is a measure of volume (size). A pound is a measure of weight. The amount of weight that can fit in 20 cubic feet is different for different things. For example, a box with a volume (size) of 20 cubic feet, filled with solid gold, would weigh more than a box with the same size but filled with feathers.

Weight and area units cannot be interconverted; there is no way to compare the two, even by using another property such as density.

How deep? Are you talking about dry mix weight or finished weight? Concrete weighs 150 pounds per cubic foot. So if you have a 6" slab, that's 150# for 2 square feet. For a 4" slab, the same amount will cover 3 square feet. For a 3" slab, 4 square feet. Concrete mix is commonly sold in 80 pound bags. The finished weight is the mix plus the water that gets chemically bound to it. There's a guide on the bag telling how many bags you need for a given area and thickness.

To calculate the outside diameter of a roll of carpet, you can use the following formula: Outside Diameter (in inches) = √[(Weight in pounds / (Width in feet x Length in feet)) * 32] In your case: Weight = 1000 pounds Width = 12 feet Length = 180 feet Outside Diameter (in inches) = √[(1000 / (12 x 180)) * 32] Outside Diameter ≈ √[(1000 / 2160) * 32] Outside Diameter ≈ √(0.1481 * 32) Outside Diameter ≈ √4.7392 Outside Diameter ≈ 2.18 inches So, the outside diameter of a 1000-pound roll of carpet that is 12 feet by 180 feet is approximately 2.18 inches.

Any object near the surface of the earth, falling without air resistance and under the influence of only gravity, falls 789 feet. (rounded) Its weight makes no difference.

"cubit feet" is nonsense; there's no such measurement. "cubic feet" is a valid unit of measurement, but it's a volume measurement and cannot be converted into pounds, a weight measurement.

No. Force x Distance = Work done.

The conversion of a chicken's live weight to dressed is not very much. The feathers, feet, and head of the chicken weigh less than half a pound.

Nothing. A weight is a force whereas a pound is a measure of mass. For example, a mass of 27 pounds would weight nothing in outer space (at the Lagrange points to be more precise), but would have a weight of millions of pound-weight near a black hole.
