Enter the area, depth, and weight of Crush and Run per cubic foot into the calculator to determine the amount of Crush and Run needed for a project.

## Crush And Run Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the amount of Crush and Run needed for a project.

CR = (A * D * W) / 2000

Variables:

- CR is the amount of Crush and Run needed in tonsA is the area in square feet D is the depth in inches W is the weight of Crush and Run per cubic foot, typically around 100 lbs

To calculate the amount of Crush and Run needed, multiply the area by the depth and the weight of Crush and Run per cubic foot. Then, divide the result by 2000 to convert the weight from pounds to tons.

## What is a Crush And Run?

Crush and Run, also known as crusher run, is a type of gravel that is commonly used in places where motor vehicles are often driven or parked. It is a mix of stone powder and small crushed stone, retaining the strength of the top layer of a driveway. It is durable, long-lasting, and versatile, making it suitable for various surfaces and landscaping projects. The stones and dust are able to compact and create a hard surface that is water-resistant and adds stability to the driveway or path where it is used.

## How to Calculate Crush And Run?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Crush And Run amount using the given formula:

- First, determine the area in square feet (A).
- Next, determine the depth in inches (D).
- Next, determine the weight of Crush and Run per cubic foot (W).
- Then, use the formula CR = (A * D * W) / 2000 to calculate the amount of Crush and Run needed in tons (CR).
- Finally, insert the variables and calculate the result.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Area (A) = 500 square feet

Depth (D) = 6 inches

Weight per cubic foot (W) = 100 lbs
