Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

How many cubic yards equals a ton? How many tons is 2000 cubic yards?

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
