### HOW TO CALCULATE WATER CONTENT FOR 1 M³ M25 CONCRETE

## HOW TO CALCULATE WATER CONTENT FOR 1 M³ M25 CONCRETE

We are know below details

- Consumption of cement per m³
- Water-cement ratio.
- Grade of concrete is M25.

Cement required for 1 m³ of M25 grade concrete is 9.51 bags.( Standard data)

As we know 1 bag of cement contains 50 kg of cement.

∴ 9.51*50 = 476 Kg of cement.

our water cement ratio is 0.5.

Remember the formula :

**W/c ratio =Water content /Cement content**

**Or**

**Water content= Cement content x W/c ratio**

Water content = 476 Kg x 0.5 = 238 Kg.

We know, 1 Kg =1 litre

So water content= 238 Kg. = 238 Litres

Add 5% wastage of water during mixing, handling,

∴ Water content = 5×238/100 + 238 = 250 litres.
