For 1 inch in depth..
900 sq. ft. divided by 27 multiplied by .1 equals 3.3 yards
Is that right? .1?
Whats up Tom? Haven't heard from you in a while.....how ya been? Lets go out for a beer sometime soon....
Not much Scott.. Name the place and time.
How 'bout the calculation?
Thanks MWM & Steve..
Heh.. I just looked at that sight just seconds before you replied
Are you guys just squaring off round and kidney shaped beds in the mulch calc?
Thanks in advance.
C'mon guys, we've been thru this before math 101!!
27 cubic feet in a yard.
So to calculate sq ft Formula is as follows:
27cuft/yd*(12"/desired depth in inches)=sqft covered/yard
eg: 6" depth 27*(12/2) or 27*2=54 sqft
4" depth 27*(12/4) or 27*3=81 ""
rectangles (and yes squares are rectangles) length*width
triangles 1/2 * base * height
Circles pi * radius*radius
Irregular shapes require advanced geometry, trigonometry and/or calculus and I don't think 1/2 of you guys have made it past algebra ... yet alone 3rd grade.
Sorry, but if I've offended anyone on this, its probably because:
A. They haven't used the search feature or
2. They don't know how to interpret a formula from a book
Wasn't there a Mulch Calculator web site?
I was it on here a while back.
Look 4 post up from yours...Steve's post.
