I am trying to figure how much asphalt i need to pave a hole measuring 35ft. Length x11ft Width, and 4 inches deep. The asphalt is sold by the ton, and i do not know the density. Can anyone help? ???

According to Reade.com crushed asphalt has a density of 45 pounds per cubic foot.

35 foot * 11 foot * (4 inches / 12) foot = 128.33 cubic foot

128.33 cubic foot * 45 pounds/cubic foot = 5774.85 pounds

5774.85 pounds / 2000 = 2.887425 U.S. short tons

Just about 3 tons

Thanks so very much! I was counting on a fast response, and you came through. ;D My buddy was telling me it was about 10 Tons, but i could not agree.
Thanks again!

I was sent the following link:

It shows it close to 10 tons.

It is very likely that the above and Reade are talking about completly different types of asphalt. Reade labeled it "crushed" asphalt and the above labeled it "hot" asphalt.
