How to calculate Cement and sand quantity in plaster
it should be noted that for
wall plaster the cement to sand ratio generally 1:6
the total volume of plaster is equal to Area of wall* thickness of plaster = 300*0.042=12.6cft .
Quantity of cement is equal to Ratio of cement/total ratio *dry volume which is equal to
1/7*17=2.42cft
the volume of sand is equal to
6/7*17=14.57cft
t
50/1440=0.0347m^3. this is the volume of 1 bag cement
volume of cement bag in cft =
0.0347*35.314=1.225 cft or 1.25cft
