**feet**(6”÷ 12” = 0.5') Multiply the three dimensions together

**to find**the number of

**cubic feet**(0.5' x 12' x 12 =72

**cubic feet**) Divide the

**cubic feet**by the number of

**cubic feet**in a

**cubic**yard (27)

**to find**thenumber of

**cubic**yards (72 ÷ 27 = 2.67 cu.yd.).

Then, how do you calculate how much gravel is needed?

To **measure** the driveway in cubic feet, multiplythe length by width by depth. For cubic yards, divide the totalcubic feet by 27. Because one cubic yard of **gravel** is equalto 1.13 tons, you can multiply your total cubic yards by 1.13 toconvert this measurement to tons.

Also Know, how do you calculate yards of gravel? **How to Calculate a Cubic Yard of Rock**

- Measure the length and width, in feet, of the area to becovered.
- Multiply the length by the width to get the squarefootage.
- Measure the depth you want, in inches--how high you want thelayer of crushed granite or other rock.
- Divide this by 324, the number of inches in a cubic yard (acubic yard is 27 cubic feet).

Secondly, how many cubic feet of rock do I need?

Multiply the square footage by the depth, such as 60times 0.167 for about 10 **cubic feet**. When you divide the**cubic feet** by 27, you get the number in **cubic** yards.If you had 120 **cubic feet**, for example, divide 120 by 27 toget about 4 1/2 **cubic** yards. If you **need** the amountin tons, multiply the **cubic** yards by 1.35.

How many cubic yards are in a ton of gravel?

A general rule of thumb when converting **cubicyards** of **gravel** to **tons** is to multiply the**cubic** area by 1.4. For your reference, **gravel**typically weighs 2,800 pounds per **cubic yard**. In addition,there are 2,000 pounds to a **ton**. For instance, if your areato be landscaped is 100 **cubic yards**, multiply that by1.4.
