## How convert tonnes to m3 and vice versa?

Use the following formulas to calculate:

1) Volume = Weight / Density

2) Weight = Volume * Density

3) Density = Weight / Volume

__Legend:__

t - tonne (weight)

m3 - cubic meter (volume)

kg/m3 - kilogram per cubic meter (density)

t/m3 - tonne per cubic meter (density)

1 tonne = 1 metric ton

__Example 1:__How convert tonnes to m3?

An example is water.

If Weight = 100 tonnes

And Density = 1000 kg/m3 (or 1 tonne/m3)

Then Volume = 100 / 1 = 100 cubic meters

__Example 2:__How convert m3 to tonnes?

An example is milk.

If Volume = 2 m3

And Density = 1030 kg/m3 (or 1.03 tonne/m3)

Then Weight = 1.03 * 2 = 2.06 tonnes

__Example 3:__How to determine density?

If Volume = 1 m3

And Weight of this volume = 0.001225 tonnes

Then Density = 0.001225 / 1 = 0.001225 tonne/m3

__Theory:__

Weight is a characteristic of the body, which is a measure of the gravitational interaction with other bodies.

Volume is a quantitative characteristic of the space occupied by a body or substance.

Density is a measure of mass per unit of volume.

Weight and volume depend on temperature, pressure and composition due to density changes.

The tonne is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI), and is defined as being equal to the mass of the International Prototype of the 1000 Kilogram a cylinder of platinum-iridium alloy stored by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures.

The cubic meters is an SI accepted metric system unit of volume equal to 1000 cubic decimetre (dm3 or liters), 1000000 cubic centimetres (cm3 or ml). A cubic meters occupies a volume of 1×1×1 metres.

## How many cubic meter are in a tonnes?

The ratio depends on the density of the material or substance.
