Brass is a unit of measurement of volume and area that has been in use for the last 20 years. For measuring volume, 1 brass is equivalent to 100 cubic feet of any building material and for measuring area, 1 brass is equal to 100 square feet of area.

In simple terms, brass is a non-standard unit of measurement used for measuring area and volume in multiple of 100. In a detailed explanation of brass for measuring area and volume can be seen in the subsequent part of this article.

If you want to know detailed information about brass and its conversion to various measurement units, then read this article carefully.

## What is Brass Unit of Measurement

Generally, building materials are purchased in terms of cubic feet or square feet. Building materials like sand, aggregate, moorum, metals, etc. are purchased in terms of brass. Material is transported to the site via trucks, tractors, dumpers, etc. to the site. The volume of the trucks is converted in terms of brass volume.

In building construction, volume and surface area both are measured in terms of brass. Sand, aggregate, metals, etc. are measured in brass, where 100 cu.ft. is equal to 1 brass. Floor tiles, plastering, painting, etc. are also measured in brass, where 100 square feet is equal to 1 brass.

### 1 Brass in Square Feet

Brass is not a standard **unit of measurement of area** for measuring building materials. For measuring **plastering, tiles, and brickwork** brass is used. In general, brass is used for simplifying area measurement in terms of square feet. **1 Brass is equal to 100 square feet** of surface area.

### 1 Brass in Cubic Feet

Brass is not a standard **unit of measurement of volume **for measuring building materials. For measuring **building materials like sand, aggregate,** etc. brass is used. In general, brass is used for simplifying volume measurement in terms of cubic feet. 1 Brass is equal to 100 cubic feet volume of building materials.

### Conversion of Cubic Meter To Brass

As we know that 1 brass is equal to 100 cubic feet. By this relation, we can find the value of 1 cubic meter in terms of brass. We also know the conversion of 1m3 to cft.

1 Brass = 100 cu.ft.

1 cubic meter = 35.315 cu.ft.

For converting 1 brass to m3, we can equate the above two relations,

1 brass = 100/35.315 cubic meter

1 brass = 2.831 cubic meter

For converting cubic meters to brass, inversely

1 cubic meter = 1/2.831 brass = 0.353 brass

Thus 1 m3 to brass is equal to 0.353 brass, and 1 brass to cu.m is equal to 2.831 m3.

### 1 Brass Sand Means How Many Kg?

As we know that brass is used for measuring the area and volume of building materials. SO measuring brass in kg is not possible to generalise for all materials. But for different building material, we can use the density of material to find the relation between brass of material into kg or other units of weight.

We know the density of sand is 1600 Kg/m3. And we also know that 1 brass is 2.83 cubic meter of any material. Thus for calculating the weight of one brass of sand we need to multiply density of the sand by 2.83.

Density of sand = 1600 kg/m3

1 brass = 2.83 m3

Thus 1 brass of sand = 1600 * 2.83 Kg

1 brass of sand = 4528 kg of sand

Thus 1 brass of sand is equivalent to 4528 kg of sand. For everyday use rounding of 4500 kg of sand is equal to 1 brass. 1 brass fo sand is equal to 4.5 ton.

Similarly, you can find the relationship of one brass of any building material with the help of its density or unit weight of the material.

### How to Calculate Material in a Truck in Brass

To calculate the material quantity of truck in brass we need to find the volume of truck in cubic feet and then convert the volume in terms of brass.

Suppose the length of the truck is 14 feet and the width is 7 feet with the depth of the truck is 3 feet. The volume of truck can be found easily by multiplying length X width X depth.

Volume of truck = L x B x D = 14 x 7 x 3 = 294 cubic feet

Thus the volume of the truck is 294 cu. feet and we need to find the volume of truck in brass. As brass is equal to 100 cubic feet.

1 Brass = 100 cubic feet

Volume of truck in brass = 294/100 = 2.94 brass

Thus the truck volume in terms of brass is 2.94, if the truck is filled up to the brim level of truck of 3 feet.

### How Plaster is Measured in Terms of Brass?

When the plastering area of the wall is 100 sqft then it is called 1 brass of plaster. For measuring the quantity of plaster or tiling work in terms of brass we need to find the area of work in square feet and then divide the area by 100. As we know that 1 brass is equal to 100 square feet.

For example, suppose that we have plaster are of 25 length and 10 feet height then we can calculate the are of plaster as,

Plastering area = 25 X 10 = 250 square feet

1 brass = 100 square feet

Thus, the Plaster area = 250/100 = 2.5 brass of plaster.

Therefore plastering area of 2.5 brass of plaster area.

### Conversion of Brass to Other Measurement Units

Measurement of brass in terms of other measuring units is shown below:

- 1 brass = 100 sqft
- 1 brass = 9.29 sq.m
- 1 brass = 11.11 square yard
- 1 brass = 0.00229 Acre
- 1 brass = 0.00093 Hectare
- 1 brass = 100 cuft
- 1 brass = 2.83 cum
- 1 brass = 2831 litre
- 1 brass = 172800 cubic inch
- 1 brass = 622 Imperial Gallon
