## How big is a 4 inch concrete block?

A **4**–**inch** CMU has an actual **size** of 3 5/8 **inch** x 7 5/8 **inch** x 7 5/8 **inch** (DxHxL). The nominal **size** is then **4** x 8 x 8. This is the smallest **concrete block size**.

## How do I calculate concrete blocks?

After you have found the square footage of both your wall and your **block**, **determining** the number of **blocks** you **need** is as simple as dividing the wall square footage by the **block** square footage. If you’re using a standard 16″ x 8″ x 8″ **block**, find the number of **blocks needed** by dividing the wall square footage by 0.89.

## What is the standard size of a hollow blocks?

Typically the **Size** Of **Hollow Blocks** In The **Philippines** are definitely the subsequent: 40cm (**length**) X 20 cm (width) X 4 in (thickness) 40cm (**length**) X 20 cm (width) X 5 in (thickness) 40cm.
