litres to tons?

Could someone help me with a conversion please?
I'm trying to find out how many 60L bags of compost would be equal to one ton of soil?
Any help would be great.
Many thanks

This is the formula to convert from liters to tons (water) is:

X liters * cf = Y tons (water)

X = the specific value to be converted (in liters)
cf = the conversion factor from liters to tons (water)
Y = the result (in tons (water))

I hope this answers your question.

Hello Guys i Agree with Robert but i have some information about this ......
metric ton is a unit of weight and liter is a unit of volume. To convert between the two, you need to know the density of the substance that you are trying to convert. :? :? :?
To begin the conversion, enter the density figure for your substance, or choose one of the approximations from the list of liquids, materials, metals or woods .What you say about it . :roll: :roll:

Litre is a unit of measure for volume while a tonne is used in measuring mass. The two units can only be related given the density of the substance in question. For example since the density of water is about one kilogram per cubic metre and therefore one tonne would be equal to 1000 litres.
