This tool helps you easily convert weights from stones to yards.

## How to Use This Stone Calculator

This calculator helps you estimate the amount of stone required for a project in tons. Simply input the length and width of the project area in yards, and the depth in inches. Click ‘Calculate’ to get the result.

## How It Calculates the Results

The formula used for the calculation is as follows:

**Cubic Yards = (Length in yards) x (Width in yards) x (Depth in inches / 36)**

Depth is divided by 36 to convert inches to yards.
Then, cubic yards are multiplied by an approximate density factor of 1.4 to convert cubic yards to tons.

## Limitations

1. Ensure all inputs are positive numbers. 2. The density factor of 1.4 tons per cubic yard is an approximation and may not be accurate for all types of stone. 3. Results are approximate and should be verified with a professional for precise requirements.
