Best Method to calculate Bricks in 1 Cubic Feet

Bricks in 1 Cubic Feet

 

Hello friend ,

 

Basically today I am going to tell you that How to check that there is 13.5 Bricks in 1 Cubic Feet Means If you have a Volume of 1 feet than how it will consumed 13.5 bricks.

 

So, today I will prove that In 1 cubic feet volume there is 13.5 bricks will be consumed.

 

So first of all You need to know, What is the standard size of a Regular used Red Clay brick

So, Dimensions  of a brick is given below :-

 

Length of a Standard size Brick = 9”

 

Width of a standard size brick =  4.5 “

 

Height or thickness of a standard size of brick =  3”

 

This is the size of our regular bricks.

 

But when we laid bricks in masonry we used  a cement sand mortar for masonry .So Always remembers that the

Thickness of Mortar = 0.08”

 

Now it comes on Proof

 

Proof of 13.5 brick in 1 cubic feet

 

So,

 

First calculate the volume of Brick that is

 

Volume of Brick = length x Width x Thickness

 

                            = 9’’ x 4.5 ‘’ x 3 ‘’

 

But we not need only this brick volume

 

Actually,

 

we need Brick volume with mortar.

So, Volume of brick with mortar = length ( with Mortar ) x Width( with Mortar )  x Thickness( with Mortar ).

 

So, Because thickness of mortar is 0.08 inch.

 

Then,length of Brick will be

 

= 9’’ +_ 0.08 ‘’ = 9.08’’

 

Same as width = 4.5’’ + 0.08 “ = 4.58 ‘’

 

Same as thickness = 3 ‘’ + 0.08 ‘’ = 3.08 ‘’

 

So, The Volume Of Brick  = 9.08‘’ x 4.58’’ x 3.08’’

 

                                            =  128 inch cube.

 

Because we calculate our quantity in cubic feet so first convert the volume of brick in cubic feet.

Or As you know

 

1 feet = 12’’

 

So when you divide the volume of brick by 3 times of 12’’ it comes in cubic feet.

 

Because our 12’’ is equal to 1 feet

So ,

                                          = 128’’/12 x 12 x 12

 

So, Volume of Brick       = 0.074 cubic feet.

 

 Now,

Numbers of Bricks in 1 Cubic feet  =  Volume of 1 Cubic Feet ( which we have to prove)/Volume of brick with mortar

 

                                         = 1/0.074

 

                                          = 13.5 Bricks

 

Hence,It is prove that 13.5 Bricks in 1 Cubic Feet will consume.

 

Hope,This article will be very useful for all of you

 

Thanks for your Attention,

 

Good Bye & Take care

 

Happy Learning 😆
