How many bricks are required for a wall or a house?
How do you determine how many bricks to order from the market?
There's a very simple way to calculate this. Let's learn the method from Professor Deepak Malviya, who is a civil engineer at Sagar Institute of Research and Technology.
Let's start the process:
First, measure the length of the wall.
Then, measure the height of the wall.
Based on your requirement, decide whether you want to build a half-brick wall, a full-brick wall, or a one-and-a-half-brick wall.
The formula for calculating this is:
Length * Height * Width = Volume
1 cubic meter = 500 bricks.
Multiply the total volume by 500, and you will have your answer.
Using this formula, you can easily estimate the number of bricks needed for measurements like 2050, 2040, 2050, 2250, 1010, 2550, etc.
The area of one brick is approximately 0.1915 square feet (3.625 inches x 7.625 inches).
Number of bricks = Total wall area / Brick area.
Number of bricks = 1280 square feet / 0.1915 square feet = 6,687 bricks.
