# Tips to find out the quantity of white cement, marble powder and marble stone tiles In this construction video tutorial, you will learn the process for computing the quantity of white cement, marble powder, marble stone tiles etc.

These construction materials are extensively used in floors and walls as the finishing materials of the house construction. So, it is important to determine their costs.

The calculation is based on the following dimensions :-

Size of the room where these materials should be applied is taken as 12 feet x 12 feet
The thickness of the mortar over the floor is taken as 0.5 inch
The thickness of the marble stone tile over the mortar is taken as 3/4 inch
The size of a marble is taken as 12 inch x 12 inch
The proportion of marble power and white cement is taken as 1:2

Initially you have to calculate the volume of the area where mortar and white cement will be used.
Volume = length x width x mortar thickness = 12 x 12 x 0.041667 (convert 0.5 inch into feet) = 6 cft
The output is in wet volume and you have to convert it to dry volume.

Dry volume = 6 x 1.27 (as volume is increased by 27% in 1 cft after converting from wet to dry volume)
= 7.62 cft

Now marble powder and white cement will be added to this dry volume.
We know the proportion is 1:2, after sum up we get 1+2 = 3
The quantities of white cement & marble powder can be found in the following ways :-

White Cement = 7.62 x 2/3 = 5.08 cft
Marbel Powder = 7.62x1/3 = 2.54 cft.
