Baseball Field Dirt Conversion
by Dave Blasik on 11/23/05 at 13:10:41
I was wondering if someone would be able to assist me in verifying the amount of dirt I need to apply to my fields to have a 4 inch base of soil.
The composition of the mixture will be 50% Sand, 25% Clay, and 25% Silt. I would assume that the soil will have some moisture in it but I can't even make a guess as to how much.
One contractor is pricing the mixture by the ton and the other is pricing it by the yard. I am really trying to calculate how many yards I need to cover 2.5 acres of land with a depth of 4 inches or a conversion factor to convert yards to tons.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First we need to convert all the units to the same base unit.
