## 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 😆
