How to calculate No. of cement bags required for 1m3 of cement

In order to calculate how many bags of cement required in 1m3, you should know about the dry density of cement.

In general Density = Mass/Volume

Dry Density of cement = Dry Mass/ Unit Volume

Got confused? Let me explain: In general cement consists of moisture content so Mass of cement includes Cement with Moisture content

Dry Mass includes cement without moisture content

So, Usually, 4% of moisture content is present in cement.

Dry Density of Cement                   = 1440kg/m3

Each bag of cement consists of     = 50kg

No. of bags in 1m3                           = 1440/50

= 29bags (approx)

Result:

Approximately 29 bags are required for 1m3 of cement.
