Depends on the substance. For example, one ton of water equals to 1.187 cubic yards. But one ton of iron would be much more compact.

To convert between mass/weight and volume you need to know the density of the substance. A good table of densities can be found on this site: http://www.simetric.co.uk/si_materials.htm
