How To Calculate Cement Bags In 1 Cubic Meter

Procedure To Calculate Cement Bags In 1 Cubic Meter:

Let us consider the nominal mix is 1:2:4

Loss of cement is considered as 2%

The output of mix is considered as 67%

To achieve 1 cum output, we need 1/0.67 = 1.49 say 1.50 cum dry mix.

Now add the wastage of 2%, i.e (1.50 + 0.02) = 1.52 cum.

Volume of cement = (cement/cement+sand+aggregate) × Total material

=(1/1+2+4) × 1.52

=0.2171 cum

As we know, the density of cement is 1440 kg/cum and

Weight of 1 bag cement = 50 kg.

Therefore volume of 1 bag cement = 50/1440

=0.0347 cum.

No. of cement bags required in 1 cubic meter = 0.2171/0.0347

= 6.25 bags.

Note: You can use the same formula for calculating cement for other nominal mixes.

  1. Good knowledge. Thanks.

  2. Very good knowledge

  3. If Mix 1:2:4 then volume of cement =cement/cement+sand+Aggregate =(1/1+2+4)×1.52 sand 2 time of cement Qty

  4. V.g far, great work, keep up, Thanks…

  5. Please reply some one who knows this

  6. Could u kindly mail me about the design mix of m40 grade concrete.

  7. Thank you so much for the knowledges!

  8. Can you mail me mix design for m30 grade as I will be replacing 5,10,15% of fine aggregate with glass and plastic waste respectively for my degree project

    Very good .please send design mix of m20&m25

  16. Great information

  17. how to calculate steel, in concrete work, what dia of rods in con;work, how many kg of steel rods.

  18. Why 67% and 2%? Are they constant per 1cum

  19. Any one please send mix design for m30 grade of concrete using 1%, 1.5%,2% crimped Steel and poly propylene fibres

  20. 50multiple 27.6and thicknass 0.42
    How to calculate cemant bages … plzz tell me

  21. 1:1.5:3 mix concrete 1cum me cement ki quantity ?
    Cement ki quantity=(1.54/1+1.5+3)*1
    Bag of cement= .28*1440
    = 403.2 (8.0 64)
    Sir KyA ye right answer hai.

  22. This is great, thank you sir.
