The Sand Required for a Sandbag Wall equation calculated the approximate volume of sand needed for  a single bag wide wall of height (H) and length (L).SandbagDoor.png

Description

The volume of sand needed for a sandbag wall is approximately the walls length times its height times its width.   This equation assumes the width is one bag laid lengthwise.  The width of a standard bag is fourteen inches (14").  When partially filled with sand, the width is approximately twelve inches (12") which is  used in this formula.
