How to Calculate Number of bricks, Cement and Sand in Wall ?

**For Example :**

Dimission of wall :

Length = 10 ft

Height = 5 ft

Thickness = 9 inch**Dimission of Brick :**

Length = 9 inch

Width = 4.5 inch

Thickness = 3 inch**Volume of wall :**

Volume formula = length × height × thickness

Wall volume = 10 × 5 × .75 = 37.5 cft**We know that :**

1 cft = 13.5 bricks

100 cft = 1350 bricks

13 .5 Multiply with volume of wall :

13.5 × 37.5 = 507 bricks required for your wall.**Volume of mortor :**

( 25/100) × 37.5 = 9.375 cft

Convert to dry Mortor = 9.375 × 1.27 = 11.90 cft

Mortor Ratio : 1 : 3

Sum of Ratio = 1 + 3 = 4**Cement Quantity :**

Cement = (1/4) × 11.90 = 2.975 cft

Convert to cement bags = 2.975 / 1.25 = 2.38 bags

1 cement bags = 1.25 cft**Sand quantity :**

Sand = (3/4) × 11.90 = 8.925 cft
