how much AS II do I need?

I have a 10 gal tank and want to put AS II into it but I do not know how much to buy. The websites that carry it do not tell you how much a 3L bag or a 9L bag fills. I'd like to have 2 inches in front going to 3 inches in back. Does anyone have any clue how much I need to buy?

I don't know the dimensions of a 10 gallon, but on this site, you can sort of get an idea:

Remember not to put any fish in there until all the ammonia is gone. Might take a couple of weeks of daily water changes. I would recommend the normal Amazonia vs. the powder. Just my input...

One 9L bag gave me about 2" in a 20 long (30x12), a 10g is 20x10.

If my math is correct, 5.04L would give you 2" in a 10g.
