The Density of Sand utility returns the density of sand based on the condition of sand (wet/dry loose/packed).
Density of Sand (M): The calculator returns the density of the sand in kilograms per cubic meter. However this can be automatically converted to other density units via the pull-down menu.
The density of sand is affected by whether the sand is packed (rammed) or loose, and whether it is wet or dry. When it is packed, the grains of sand are forced into tighter formation and more matter is in the volume. When the sand is wet, water is in the sand, also affecting the total matter in the volume. The meanof the different conditions of sand are as follows:
