One of those measurements is area. The other is weight. The two measurements mean completely different things.

I don't know it you still want this answered but here goes.

6000 sq ft x 1 ft = 6000-ft

the average density of dirt is 120 lbs per cubic foot (since this is an average it will make the answer only approximate - to get an accurate estimate you would need to measure the density of the dirt you are asking about).

6000-ft

one metric ton = 2204.6-lb

720000-lb x 1-metric ton / 2204.6-lb = 326.6 metric ton

6000 sq ft x 1 ft = 6000-ft

^{3}the average density of dirt is 120 lbs per cubic foot (since this is an average it will make the answer only approximate - to get an accurate estimate you would need to measure the density of the dirt you are asking about).

6000-ft

^{3}X 120-lb/ft^{3}= 720000-lb.one metric ton = 2204.6-lb

720000-lb x 1-metric ton / 2204.6-lb = 326.6 metric ton

Many thanks for your answer. The area I have excavated is as written. Your answer indicates I'll need 16.5 20 Ton truck loads to fill the area I have excavated for my new drive way. (I understand this is approx due to density.)

Many thanks for you help! Andy

Many thanks for you help! Andy

I need to convert 1115 square meters to metric tons

I need to convert 3000 lb to square inches
