What is the Brass unit of measurement?

100 cubic feet or 100 Square feet

2.83 cubic meters or 9.29 square meter

A brass is exactly 100 square feet (ft2) and 9.29 square meters (m2) of area (used in the measurement of work done or to be done for plastering, painting, etc.). However, it is also equivalent to 100 cubic feet (ft3) or 2.83 cubic meters (m3) of supplied or estimated loose materials such as sand, aggregate, and rubble.

For example: when we calculate the surface Area of the building work

The term brass means 100 Square feet or 9.29 square meter.

For example: when we calculate the Volume of any building work or materials

The term brass means 100 cubic feet or 2.83 cubic meter.

Surface Area Calculation

How to convert the area in sqft to brass?

A slab of size 20′ in length and 10′ in width.

Area of the slab = 20′ × 10′= 200 sqft

1brass = 100 sqft

= 200/100 = 2 brass

How to convert the area in sqm to brass?

A slab of size 4m in length and 3m in width.

Area of the slab = 4 × 3= 12 sqm

1brass = 9.29 sqm

= 12/9.29 =1.291 brass

How to convert one sqft into brass?

As we know, 1brass = 100 sqft.

Inversely, 1 sqft= 1/100 = 0.01 brass.

1 sqft = 0.01 brass

How to convert one sqm into brass?

As we know, 1brass = 9.29 sqm

Inversely, 1 sqm = 1/9.29 = 0.107 brass.

1 sqm = 0.107 brass

How many bricks are in 1 brass area?

As, 1 brass = 100 sqft

Converting square feet into square meter

As we know, 10.76 sqft = 1 sqm

10.76 sqft = 100/10.76 sqm = 9.293 sqm

We will take brick size as 225 mm x 112.5 mm x 75 mm

Now size of one brick = 225 mm x 112.5 mm x 75 mm

Brick size with mortar = 235 mm x 122.5 mm x 85 mm

Area of one of brick = 0.235 m × 0.085 m = 0.019975 sqm

Area of 1 brick = 0.019975 sqm

Number of bricks = 1 brass volume/brick volume

No. of bricks = 9.293 sqm / 0.019975 sqm

No. of bricks = 1839.94 = 1840

Brass Volume Calculation

How to convert the area in cft to brass?

A slab of size 20′ in length and 10′ in width and a thickness of 5” (0.4167ft).

Area of the slab = 20′ × 10′ x 0.416’ = 83.2 cft

1brass = 100 cft

= 83.2 /100 = 0.832 brass

How to convert the area in sqm to brass?

A slab of size 4m in length and 3m in width and 150mm in thickness.

Area of the slab = 4 × 3 x 0.150= 1.8 cum

1brass = 2.83 cum

= 1.8/2.83 = 0.636 brass

How to convert one cft into brass?

As we know, 1brass = 100 cft.

Inversely, 1 sqft= 1/100 = 0.01 brass.

1 cft = 0.01 brass

How to convert one cum into brass?

As we know, 1brass = 2.83 cum

Inversely, 1 sqm = 1/2.83 = 0.353 brass.

1 sqm = 0.353 brass

How many bricks are in 1 brass volume?

As, 1 brass = 100 cft

Converting cft into cum

As we know, 35.3147 cft = 1 cum

35.3147 cft = 100/35.3147 = 2.831 cum

We will take brick size as 225 mm x 112.5 mm x 75 mm

Now size of one brick = 225 mm x 112.5 mm x 75 mm

Brick size with mortar = 235 mm x 122.5 mm x 85 mm

Volume of one of brick = 0.235 m × 0.1225m x 0.085m= 0.00244 cum

Volume of 1 brick = 0.00244 cum

Number of bricks per 1 brass (4” wall) = 1 brass volume/brick volume

No. of bricks per 1 brass = 2.831 / 0.00244

No. of bricks per 1 brass = 1160.24 nos

How many bricks are in 1 brass volume?

Ans: 1161 Number of bricks per 1 brass

What is meant by one brass material in a truck?

When a truck carrying sand is received at site and is measured as 15ft.in length (L), 8ft.in width (W), and 3ft. in depth(D), it is said to be carrying sand of volume, 15’x 8 ‘x 3’= 360cft

Now, 1 brass = 100 cubic ft. So, converting the cubic ft. into brass

Therefore, 360/100 = 3.60 brass.

How to calculate the weight of one brass of sand?

The weight of one cubic meter of sand is 1650kg. (approx.) 1 brass = 2.831cubic meter. So, the weight of 1 brass of sand = 1650x2.831= 4671kg. therefore 4.6ton. Similarly, we can calculate the weight per brass of other building materials.
