1 ton, but I don't know whether that's a short ton or a long ton. A cubic ton is a measurement of volume (i.e. how much space it takes up). A cubic ton of sand is how much space a ton of sand takes up. A cubic ton of timber is how much space a ton of timber takes up, and as timber is lighter than sand, a cubic ton of timber is larger than a cubic ton of sand, even though they both weigh the same. As for the volume of a cubic ton of sand, I have no idea. You could get a rough answer this way: "m" divided by "d" where m =one ton in whatever units you are using (e.g. kg) and d = density of sand (in the same units)

A ton!

1 ton

A cubic yard of topsoil, if compacted to get the air pockets out will weigh more than 1 tone. If the topsoil is loose, a cubic yard of it could weigh about 1 ton. A lot depends on the topsoil, and whether it has more stone dust or less in it. The more moist the topsoil is, the more likely it will weigh more than a ton.

Depends. A cubic meter of WHAT? If it's a cubic meter of lead, it would weigh quite a bit. A cubic meter of air, not so much. The standard substance that is used to relate metric measurements to each other is water. The "gram" was defined as the mass (not weight, but similar) of one cubic centimeter of water at normal temperature. There are 1 million cubic centimeters in a cubic meter, so a cubic meter of water would have a mass of 1 million grams, or 1,000 kilograms, or 1 metric ton. To obtain the mass of 1 cubic meter of some other substances, simply multiply the specific gravity of the substance by the mass of a cubic meter of water.

The cubic meter of water will weigh one metric ton, or 1000 (one thousand) kilograms. It will contain about 264 (two hundred sixty four) gallons of water.

depends on the material you are measuring, a cubic yard of feathers may not weigh a ton, but a cubic yard of lead would.

A lot --- a cubic yard of gravel could weigh around 1500 lbs.

One metric ton of plain water has a volume of about 35.32 cubic feet.

Assuming you are talking about 'tons' (2,000 pounds) then there is no answer to your question. As an example, if the the cubic meter was filled with hydrogen or helium gas, it would be lighter than air even is, and it would rise up and up toward the sky. A cubic meter of feathers might weigh a few pounds, while a cubic meter of water would weigh nearly a ton. (2,000 pounds). Imagine how much a cubic meter of heavy lead would weigh!

A cubic yard of lime sludge at 24-28 percent solids would weigh approximately 2,400-2,800 pounds. This calculation takes into account the weight of the water content in the sludge at the given percentage.

A ton is a measure of weight, not volume, and as such, there IS no "cubic" ton. In US measurement, a ton of water (2000 lbs) would be about 239.65 gallons.

A ton of rocks and a ton of water both weigh the same, which is one ton. Weight is determined by the mass of an object, regardless of its composition.

The weight of one cubic meter can vary depending on the substance being measured. For water, one cubic meter weighs approximately 1000 kilograms (or one metric ton). However, for other materials like concrete or steel, the weight of one cubic meter will be different.
