**How Many Bags of Concrete In A Yard**

Let’s understand with an example,

**1. How Many 40lb Bags Of Concrete In A Yard?**

**If you** ordered a **40lb (18.1 kg) weight bag of concrete **which **yields work **approximately **0.30 cu. ft.**

So, we know that **3 ft = 1 yard**

Therefore, **3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft = 27 cu. ft **and **1 yard x 1 yard x 1 yard = 1 cu. Yard**

It means** 27 cu. ft = 1 cu. yard**

So, you get** how many bags of concrete in a yard**, you have to** divide** the **27 cu. ft. by 0.60.**

27 /0.60 = 90 bags

So, you** required 90 bags **of concrete** in a yard of work.**

**2. How Many 45lb Bags Of Concrete In A Yard?**

**If you** ordered a **45lb (20.4 kg)** weight **bag of concrete** which **yield work **approximately** 0.34 cu. ft.**

So, we know that** 3 ft = 1 yard**

Therefore, **3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft = 27 cu. ft** and** 1 yard x 1 yard x 1 yard = 1 cu. Yard**

It means **27 cu. ft = 1 cu. yard**

So, you get **how many bags of concrete in a yard**, you have to divide the** 27 cu. ft.** by **0.34.**

27 /0.34 = 80 bags

**So, you required 80 bags of concrete in a yard of work.**

**3. How Many 60lb Bags Of Concrete In A Yard?**

**If you **ordered a **60lb (27.2 kg)** weight** bag of concrete **which **yield work** approximately** 0.45 cu. ft.**

So, we know that 3 ft = 1 yard

Therefore**, 3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft = 27 cu. ft **and **1 yard x 1 yard x 1 yard = 1 cu. Yard**

It means **27 cu. ft = 1 cu. yard**

So, you get **how many bags of concrete in a yard**, you have to divide the **27 cu. ft. by 0.45.**

27 /0.45 = 60 bags

**So, you required 60 bags of concrete in a yard of work.**

**4. How Many 80lb Bags of Concrete In A Yard**

**If you** ordered an** 80lb (36.2 kg) weight bag of concrete** which** yield work** approximately** 0.60 cu. ft.**

So, we know that** 3 ft = 1 yard**

Therefore, **3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft = 27 cu. ft** and **1 yard x 1 yard x 1 yard = 1 cu. Yard**

It means** 27 cu. ft = 1 cu. yard**

So, you get **how many bags of concrete in a yard, **you have to divide the **27 cu. ft. by 0.60.**

27 /0.60 = 45 bags

So, you required** 45 bags of concrete in a yard of work.**

**5. How Many 90lb Bags Of Concrete In A Yard?**

**If you** ordered a** 90lb (48.8 kg**) weight **bag of concrete **which **yield work** approximately **0.68 cu. ft.**

So, we know that **3 ft = 1 yard**

Therefore,** 3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft = 27 cu. ft** and **1 yard x 1 yard x 1 yard = 1 cu. Yard**

It means** 27 cu. ft = 1 cu. yard**

So, you get **how many bags of concrete in a yard,** you have to divide the **27 cu. ft. by 0.68.**

27 /0.68 = 40 bags

So, you required **40 bags of concrete in a yard of work.**

**How Much Water Will I Need Per Bag?**

Th**e amount of water** to add per **bag depends** on the** size and weight **bag supplied by the **company.**

**Always** Check** Company recommended** **water amount per bag **of concrete **while making the mix.**

The following are various **sizes of concrete bags** and **recommended water **content in them.

Bag Size | Water |

40 lb. (18.1 kg) | 1.8 Liter |

45 lb. (20.4 kg) | 2.1 Liter |

60 lb. (27.2 kg) | 2.8 Liter |

80 lb. (36.2 kg) | 3.7 Liter |

90 lb. (40.8 kg) | 4.2 Liter |

**How Many Square Feet Are In A Yard Of Concrete?**

The** square feet area** cover by the** yard of the concrete bag **will depend on the **thickness of the slab.**

**For example,**

If we have **60lb of a bag of concrete** and we know that it will give us **0.45 cu ft of work.**

And, the **thickness of slab** is** 2” (2/12 = 0.17 ft, Because 12” = 1 ft)**

**Convert cu ft to sq ft,**

**Sq ft = cu ft / thickness (depth)**

= 0.45/0.17 = **2.64 sq ft**

So, an 8**0lb bag of concrete can cover an area of 2.64 sq ft area.**

Similarly, another size of a bag of concrete and their **covered area** is given in the **below table,**

**1. For 2” Thickness of Slab**

Bag Size | Sq ft Area Work |

40 lb. (0.30 cu. ft) | 1.76 sq ft |

45 lb. (0.34 cu. ft) | 2.0 sq ft |

60 lb. (0.45 cu. ft) | 2.64 sq ft |

80 lb. (0.60 cu. ft) | 3.52 sq ft |

90 lb. (0.68 cu. ft) | 4.0 sq ft |

**2. For 4” Thickness of Slab**

Bag Size | Sq ft Area Work |

40 lb. (0.30 cu. ft) | 0.90 sq ft |

45 lb. (0.34 cu. ft) | 1.02 sq ft |

60 lb. (0.45 cu. ft) | 1.35 sq ft |

80 lb. (0.60 cu. ft) | 1.80 sq ft |

90 lb. (0.68 cu. ft) | 2.04 sq ft |

**3. For 6” Thickness of Slab**

Bag Size | Sq ft Area Work |

40 lb. (0.30 cu. ft) | 0.60 sq ft |

45 lb. (0.34 cu. ft) | 0.68 sq ft |

60 lb. (0.45 cu. ft) | 0.90 sq ft |

80 lb. (0.60 cu. ft) | 1.20 sq ft |

90 lb. (0.68 cu. ft) | 1.36 sq ft |
