500 no. of bricks(brick size - 20cm.*10cm.*10cm.) required
for 1 cum of brick masonry.
and suppose, ratio = 1:6
then , sum = 1+6 = 7
as we know, total dry mortar required for 1 cum. of brick
masonry = 0.30 cum.
therefore following dry matrial required.
cement = 1* 0.30/7 = .04 cum. *28.8 = 1.15 bags.
sand = 6* 0.30/7 = 0.26 cum.
or 0.26 cum. * 35.3 = 9.18 cft.
Material required for 1 cum. of brick masonry in mortar
ratio of 1:6.
cement = 1.15 bags.
sand = 9.18 cft.
bricks = 500 nos.

As thickness of motar is not uniform it should be
taken as 32% instead of 30%.To level the top masons
usually use motar more than 1cm as it should be.

1cm=35.32 cft
normal size of brick=.75*.375*.25=.0703
if volum 35.32cft
morter.30%
morter=35.32*.30=10.59
brick=35.32-10.59=24.724/.0703=351bricks
ratio 1;6=7
1/7*10.59*1.27/1.25=1.54 cement
6/7*10.59*1.27=11.52 cft sand
