How much cement do I need to pour a 4 inch deep 22'W x 32'L foundation?

Thank you

Cement is a component of the powdery mix which also includes sand and aggregate that make up CONCRETE. Your dimensions work out to 1.63 cubic feet. A typical 60 lb. bag of concrete mix will yield between 1/2 and 2/3 cubic feet of concrete. Read the bag for exact volume. Thus you will need about 3 to 4 bags.

If this is a concrete pad, I estimate you need 8.7 cubic yards =((4/12)*22*32)/27. This will require at least a truck-load (forget the bags).

Bravey was having a bad day on the previous estimate.

Opps! Tomh is right. My computer screen makes the ' symbol look like an inch symbol. 1.63 cf won't go near as far as 8.7 cyds.....although, if I had a bag of magic concrete and wished really really hard........

Bravey, you don't miss too many, and since you missed this by a mile I assumed you had just seen something different. Keep up the good work, and go easy on me when I make a mistake.

Magic concrete...LOL
