Need more information! Is the material weight in lbs/ft^3?, lbs/cy^3?, kg/m^3?

Regardless, if you divide weight/cy^3 by 2000, you will obtain tons/cy^3.

IF the material was ghost turds and the weight was 1.65 lbs/ft^3, you multiply by 27 to obtain lbs/cy^3, which would be 44.55 lbs/cy^3.

Divide by 2000 to convert to tons: 44.55 lbs/cy^3 / 2000 = 0.022275 tons/cy^3

If you had 100 cy^3 of ghost turds, multiply by 0.022275 tons/cy^3 to get the total weight, which would = 2.2275 tons
