1:5 ratio = 144 cubic inches of compost or enough to cover an area 12 inches X 12 inches 1 inch deep
1:10 ratio = 288 cubic inches of compost or enough to cover an area of 12 inches X 12 inches 2 inches deep

1 US pint = 28.8750001 cubic inches

I ran into this in an earlier post. I asked the same question. Lbs is weight not volume.

I was told you may be able to use weight when using WBS. That being the case 1 pint of WBS (2/3 full) is about 1 lb. Thus 10 pints of WBS should be enough to do a 40lb bag of compost. But this is just guessing!
