How many bags of cement to make 1m3 of concrete? We’ll see all doubts you may have about this, and how to calculate bags of cement per m3.
How to Calculate How many Bags of Cement to make 1m3 of Concrete
- You must choose a concrete resistance. Generally, it is 20.0MPa or 25.0MPa, for structural elements of a house (columns, beams, slabs.)
- Choose the size of the bag (40lb, 80lb, 20kg, 25kg or 50kg).
- Enter a number or quantity of bags, until the volume of concrete is 1m3.

Features to Know when Calculating Bags of Cement of Concrete
- The density of the cement is 1440kg/m3 .
- Therefore, a cubic meter of cement weighs 1440kg.
- A 50kg bag of cement represents a volume of 0.035m3.
- A cubic meter are 28.5 bags of 50kg of cement.
Also it is important to know the different TYPES OF CONCRETE.
How many Bags of Cement per m3 of M25 concrete (250kg/cm2)

Dosages for Calculation
You must bear in mind that CONCRETE DOSAGES vary from one country to another, and even within the same country, since they depend on the characteristics of the aggregates and the quality of the cement
When building, using reinforced concrete, it is important to know the reinforcement that must be placed. So it can be useful for you, the CALCULATION OF BUILD MATERIALS , to know HOW MANY RODS ARE NEEDED FOR A SLAB , of any size.
