Hi ,
1 cubic meter contains 500 bricks

The Standard size of the 1st class brick is 190mm x 90mm x
90mm and motor joint should be 10mm thick
So brick with motor=200 x 100 x 100.
Volume of 1st class brick = 0.19 x 0.09 X 0.09 = 0.001539
Volume of 1st class brick with motor =0.2 x 0.1 x 0.1=0.002

No. on bricks per 1cu.m= 1/volume of 1st class brick with
= 500 nos of bricks
Volume of the 1st class brick = 500 x 0.001539
=0.7695 cu.m
Volume of the 1st class brick = 1-0.7695
= 0.2305 cu.m
