Thanks for the feedback!
1 Ton(2000lbs) coal is appox 40 cubic feet this varies by the character of the coal and the honesty of the weight
If I had one ton of lead in one block what would its dimensions be? 1 metric ton of lead is 88.18cm3
bigger than 2 truckloads of them probably
A "cubic ton" (or "cubic tonne") is a measure of volume, which depends on the object contained therein. Therefore, there is no simple answer to this question. Refer to the Wik…ipedia link, below, for further information, or enter "cubic ton" into your favorite search engine.
If you make the ton of ice in a perfect cube, it would be 3 feet, 3 and one quarter inch long on each side. That's about 1.3 cubic yards.
Hmmm. You have weight and you want size. That means you'll need density! Now, the density can be googled. Gold weighs roughly 19.32 grams per cubic centimeter. Now, you s…imply divide the number of grams in a ton by the number of grams per cc, and you get the number of cc's it takes to make a ton. Assuming you mean a metric ton (1000 kilos), that's 1,000,000 / 19.32 = 51,760 cubic centimeters. How big is 51,760 cubic centimeters? The dimensions of a cube are easy to find using a calculator: The cube root of 51,760 is 37.26, so you'd have a 37.26-cm cube. That's just under 15 inches on each side - yep, a 15-inch cube of gold weighs a ton. Yikes! A short ton (2000 lbs.) will give a slightly different number, but hopefully you see how the process works.
its really big.. picture it.
Carbon dioxide is made up of one atom or carbon with two atoms ofoxygen. One ton of carbon dioxide gas would fill a cube 8.13 metershigh.
well 3360 pounds is 1524.07046 kilos.
Well a ton is 2,000 so 60x2,000=120,000
How can a ship a big as titanic with a mass of 46328 tons has a density less than 2 grams per cubic centimeter?
When the ship's volume displacing water (immersed volume, when not 'leaking') is greater than 46328 (Mega gram) / 2 (Mega gram/ Mega cm 3 ) = 23164 (Mega cm 3 ) = 23164 m … 3 then the density is less than 2 g/cm 3 , as ask in this question. However it will only float when its density is less than 1.0 g/cm 3 , which is the density of water. So: When the ship's volume displacing water (immersed volume, when not 'leaking') is greater than 46328 (Mega gram) / 1.0 (Mega gram/ Mega cm 3 ) = 46328 (Mega cm 3 ) = 46328 m 3 it floats. (This is according to Archimedes Law) ( Mega means one million, 10 6 , so 1 ton = 10 3 kg = 10 6 gram = 1 Mega gram ; the same goes with 1 Mega cu cm = 10 6 cu cm = 1 cu m = 1 m 3 ) By the way: Giga = 10 +9 , Mega = 10 +6
A kilonewton is a measure of force whereas a ton is a measure of mass. The two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, conversion …from one to the other (or comparison between them) is not valid.
