In
this article, we explained how many bricks in 1 square foot (sqft) 10 sqft,
50 sqft, and 100 square feet for a 9” brick wall.

We
know that bricks have irregular shapes and sizes and their dimensions vary
according to different countries, but in this article, we measured the Indian
standard size of a brick and the American standard modular brick size used in
the standard calculation.

**Brick Size used in the construction**

**Indian** standard size of brick have dimension 9″× 4.5″×3″

**US **standard
size of brick has dimension 8” × 3 5/8” × 2 ¼” in. (203 × 92 × 57 mm).

**Mortar thickness**

The thickness of cement mortar in brickwork is about 0.4″ to 0.5″ (10 to 12 mm)

**Let’s dive**

**First, we find, how many bricks in a 9-inch
(9”) wall - ****Indian standard **

**The thickness of the brick wall = 9” - 0.75’**

**Size of one brick**
= 9″× 4.5″×3″ > feet > 0.75’ x 0.383’ x 0.25’

Consider, **Thickness of mortar** = 0.4 inch = 12 mm

**By adding the thickness of the mortar**

Length of Bricks in meter (L)
= 9” + 0.4” = 9.4” - 0.783’

Width of Bricks in meter
(W) = 4.5” + 0.4” = 4.9” - 0.4083’

Thickness of Bricks in
meter (T) = 3” + 0.4” = 3.4” - 0.283’

Size of the brick with
mortar in feet = 0.783’ x 0.4083’ x 0.283’

**Volume of brick wall ****of each Brick ****in CFT**= L x W x H = 0.783’ x 0.4083’ x 0.283’ = 0.09047 cft

**How many bricks in 1 sq ft (square feet)
for the 9-inch brick wall?**

Area of brickwork = 1 sqft

Volume of 1 sqft brick work
= Area × thickness of the brick wall

Volume
of 1 sqft brick work = 1 sqft × 0.75

Volume of 1 sqft brick work
= 0.75 cft

**No. of bricks in 1 square feet (sqft) = Volume of 1 sqft
brickwork / Volume of one brick with mortar **

**No. of bricks in 1 square feet (sqft) **= 0.75/0.09047

**No. of bricks in 1 square feet (sqft) **= 8.29 nos bricks

Considering, 5 to 10%
wastage of brick during transportation and storage

10% wastage brick = 0.829 nos

**Total number bricks in 1 sqft** = 8.29 + 0.829 = 9.119 – **10 nos**

**How many bricks in 1 sqft for the 9-inch brick wall?**

**10 nos** in
1 square foot for 9 inches thick or double/ full brick wall

**How many bricks in 10 sq ft (square feet)
for the 9-inch brick wall?**

Area of brickwork = 1 sqft

Volume of 10 sqft brick work
= Area × thickness of the brick wall

Volume
of 10 sqft brick work = 10 sqft × 0.75

Volume of 10 sqft brick work
= 7.5 cft

**No. of bricks in 10 square feet (sqft) = Volume of 10 sqft
brickwork / Volume of one brick with mortar **

**No. of bricks in 10 square feet (sqft) **= 7.5/0.09047

**No. of bricks in 10 square feet (sqft) **= 82.90 nos bricks

Considering, 5 to 10%
wastage of brick during transportation and storage

10% wastage brick = 8.29 nos

Total number bricks in 10
sqft = 82.9 + 8.29 = 91.19 – 100 nos

**How many bricks in 10 sqft for the 9-inch brick wall?**

**100 nos** in
10 square feet for 9 inches thick or double/ full brick wall

**How many bricks in 100 sq ft (square feet)
for the 9-inch brick wall?**

Area of brickwork = 100 sqft

Volume of 100 sqft brick work
= Area × thickness of brick wall

Volume
of 100 sqft brick work = 100 sqft × 0.75

Volume of 100 sqft brick work
= 75 cft

**How much cement, sand, and bricks are needed for 1 sqft and 1 cft brickwork?**

**No. of bricks in 100 square feet (sqft) = Volume of 100 sqft
brickwork / Volume of one brick with mortar **

**No. of bricks in 100 square feet (sqft) **= 75/0.09

047

**No. of bricks in 10 0square feet (sqft) **= 829.0 nos bricks

Considering, 5 to 10%
wastage of brick during transportation and storage

10% wastage brick = 82.9 nos

Total number bricks in 10
sqft = 829 + 82.9 = 911.9 – 1000 nos

**How many bricks in 100 sqft for 9-inch brick wall?**

**1000 nos** in 10 square foot for 9 inches thick or double/ full
brick wall

**How many bricks in a 4-inch (4”) wall - ****Indian
standard **

The thickness of brick wall =
4.5”- 0.375’

**How many bricks in 1 sq ft (square feet)
for the 4.5-inch brick wall?**

Area of brickwork = 1 sqft

Volume of 1 sqft 4.5” brickwork wall = Area × thickness of the brick wall

Volume
of 1 sqft 4.5” brickwork wall = 1 sqft × 0.375

Volume of 1 sqft 4” brickwork
wall = 0.375 cft

**No. of bricks in 1 square feet (sqft) = Volume of 1 sqft
brickwork / Volume of one brick with mortar **

**No. of bricks in 1 square feet (sqft) **= 0.375/0.09047

**No. of bricks in 1 square feet (sqft) **= 4.145 nos bricks

Considering, 5 to 10%
wastage of brick during transportation and storage

10% wastage brick = 0.4145 nos

**Total number bricks in 1 sqft** = 4.145 + 0.4145 = 4.559 – **5 nos**

**How many bricks in 1 sqft for the 4.5-inch brick wall?**

**5 nos** in
1 square foot for 4.5 inches thick or single brick wall

**How many bricks in 10 Sqft for the 4.5-inch brick wall?**

1 sqft 4″ brick wall have 5
brick. Therefore For 10 sqft we should multiple 5 × 10 = 50 number of bricks.

**How many bricks in 100 Sqft for the 4.5-inch brick wall?**

1 sqft 4″ brick wall have 5
brick. Therefore For 100 sqft we should multiple 5 × 100 = 500 bricks.

**How many bricks in 1000 Sqft for the 4-inch brick wall?**

1 sqft 4″ brick wall have 5
brick. Therefore For 1000 sqft we should multiple 5 × 1000 = 5000 number of
bricks.

**How many bricks in an 8-inch (8”) wall - ****US
standard **

**US **standard
size of brick has dimensions 8” × 3.625” × 2.25” in. (203 × 92 × 57 mm).

**The thickness of brick wall = 8” - 0.667’**

**Size of one brick** =
8” × 3.625” × 2.25” in. (203 × 92 × 57 mm).

Consider, **Thickness of mortar** = 0.4 inch = 12 mm

**By adding the thickness of the mortar**

Length of Bricks in meter (L)
= 8” + 0.4” = 8.4” - 0.7 ’

Width of Bricks in meter
(W) = 3.625” + 0.4” = 4.025” - 0.335’

Thickness of Bricks in
meter (T) 2.25” + 0.4” = 2.45” - 0.204’

Size of the brick with
mortar in feet = 0.7’ x 0.335’ x 0.204’

**Volume of brick wall ****of each US Brick ****in CFT**= L x W x H = 0.7’ x 0.335’ x 0.204’= 0.047838 cft

**Volume of brick work ****of each US Brick ****in CFT**= 1 sqft x 0.667 = 0.667 cft

**No. of bricks in 1 square feet (sqft) = Volume of 1 sqft
brickwork / Volume of one brick with mortar**
= **0.667/0.047838 = 13.942 nos**

Considering, 5 to 10%
wastage of brick during transportation and storage

10% wastage brick = 1.39 nos

**Total number bricks in 1 sqft** **= 13.942 + 1.39**
= 15.332 – **16 nos**

**How many bricks in 1 sqft
(square feet) of 8 inches US brick wall?**

16 nos in 1 square foot for 8 inches thick or double/ full brick wall of
US brick wall
