How Many 94 Lb Bags Of Cement In A Yard?

When ordering concrete, most people want to know how many 94 lb bags of cement it will take to make a cubic yard. The answer is that it depends on the type of cement and the method used to mix it with water.

For example, if you were using Type I Portland Cement (1/2″ minus) and mixing at a water-to-cement ratio of 1:3, you would need approximately 2.25 pounds per gallon (3.5 pints). If you had a 5 gallon bucket, you would need approximately 12 pounds (8 bags) of concrete.

If you were using Type II Portland Cement (1/4″ minus) and mixing at a water-to-cement ratio of 1:3, you would need approximately 1.75 pounds per gallon (2.75 pints). If you had a 5 gallon bucket, you would need approximately 9 pounds (6 bags) of concrete.
