# Thread: M3 to Tonnes Convert

1. ## M3 to Tonnes Convert

Hi All

There is a tank of Active Carbon, which when full to 100% holds 57 M3(meters Cubed) (1% of the tank would be 0.57 M3)

If the amount used in a day was say 1% which is 0.57 M3, how do i convert this to tonnes?

Any help will be greatly received.

You need to know the density to do that.

Hi RoryA

I found the below table if that helps?

The density table is scrollable to the right Density = weight ÷ volume microgram (µg) milligram (mg) gram (g) kilogram (kg) tonne (t) ounce (oz) pound (lb) volume unit grain (gr) slug (sl) short ton (short tn) long ton (long tn) stone (st) troy ounce (oz t) troy pound (troy) pennyweight (dwt)
activated carbonweigh(s) 1.48 gram per (cubic centimeter) or 0.855 ounce per (cubic inch).At temperature:20°C ¦ 68°F ¦ 293.15KMelting Point (MP):3826.85°C ¦ 6920.33°F ¦ 4100KReference:

Incorrect Tables - This one is correct:

 Density = weight ÷ volume microgram (µg) milligram (mg) gram (g) kilogram (kg) tonne (t) ounce (oz) pound (lb) volume unit cubic centimeter 1 480 000 1 480 1.48 0 1.48 × 10-6 0.05 0 cubic centimeter cubic decimeter 1 480 000 000 1 480 000 1 480 1.48 0 52.21 3.26 cubic decimeter cubic meter 1 480 000 000 000 1 480 000 000 1 480 000 1 480 1.48 52 205.46 3 262.84 cubic meter

6. ## Re: M3 to Tonnes Convert

From that you know it's 1.48 tonnes per cubic metre so you just need to multiply by the number of cubic metres.

Thanks RoryA

So if 1% was used at 0.57m3 then the calc is as simple as =0.57*1.48 ?

Yup.
