# Advice 1: How to convert linear metres to tonnes

If you want to compare or just measure only one material parameter: the length, then apply a notional unit called a "linear meter . From the meter standard, it is no different, the same comprising one hundred centimeters, and is mainly used in order to emphasize that all the remaining steammeters (width, weight, material of manufacture, shape, etc.) the measurements are ignored. However, sometimes the need arises to restore the values and other parameters (e.g., weight), knowing only the length in running meters.

If you are aware of the weight of one running meter of the product (e.g., pipes, fittings, boards, cloth, etc.), then transfer the initial value of ton will be quite simple. If necessary, you can just weigh it yourself. Don't have to do this is with a product meter length - if possible, it is sufficient to determine the weight of, for example, 20 linear centimeters, and then multiply it by five. Or Vice versa, knowing the weight of heavy items, divide it by the number of these meters. Receiving values for one meter, multiply by your desired number.

Weight many products can be identified by their markings - for example, it refers to the metal. This marking is applied to the product or recorded in accompanying documents and must meet the established state standards. Knowing her, by corresponding tables to find out the weight of each meter and multiply it by your desired number. For example, numbers assigned to various products of metal, and the corresponding weight of steammeters can be found in the table located on this page: http://unixmet.narod.ru/weight.htm.

If the weight of one meter is unknown, but there is information on the material you are interested in the product, and also its size, start with the definition of the volume occupied by each linear meter. Depending on the shape of the product it is necessary to apply different formulas. For example, the cross section of the metal bar is rectangular in shape, so to determine the volume, multiply the width by the height and length in any form is equal to one meter.

To determine the volume of the metal pipe it is necessary to know its internal and external diameters - multiply the number PI times the difference squared of larger and smaller radii, and the resulting value multiply the length of one meter. After receiving the value, multiply it by the specific gravity of the material - it can be found in their respective directories. So you calculate the weight of each meter and will receive the same source data described in the previous step. Will simply multiply the resulting value by the number of meters.

# Advice 2: How to convert ton to yards

Life sometimes poses a non-trivial task. One day my beloved man will ask you: "do you Know how to convert ton to meters?", and you will say, "Sure, you know." It's time to learn this simple manipulation, in order not to lose face.
You will need
• 1. the car carrying more than a ton; 2. a ton of fence to build a fence or other household needs; 3. the tape or tape measure; 4. a piece of paper.
Instruction
1
1. Get somewhere a ton of the fence. You can buy or rent in the store building materials for the experiment. Importantly, the weight corresponds exactly to one ton. Submerge the fence in the car and take him to a prepared place where you will be transferring tons to meters.
2
Unload a ton of fence in a small space where you will not be disturbed (for example, at his dacha). Armed with a measuring tape or tape measure, measure the length of each plank, fixing all on a piece of paper. The process is labor intensive, please be patient. It is recommended to put all measured boards in a separate pile, not to confuse them with have not measured the plates.
3
When all the boards will be measured and all data recorded, perform some simple math calculations. Fold the length of all planks to each other. You can use a calculator to perform calculations in a column or count in mind. The result will be the desired value. You moved a lot of fence (in kilograms) length (centimeters).
