Code to add this calci to your website  A simple and effective online sand weight calculator to calculate 'Density of Sand in Kg/m3' based on the values of mass of sand and volume of calibrating container.

Density of Sand: In general, Density can be defined as mass per unit volume/mean particles per unit volume. The sand density varies upon several factors and its conditions. A normal loose dry sand has the density of 1442 kg/m3.

#### Sand Density Formula:

The ratio of mass of the sand to the volume of calibrating container gives you the density of sand.

Density of sand = Mass of sand / Volume of calibrating container

Use our density of sand calculator tool to find the mass of different sad forms. To calculate the granules of sand per unit volume, enter the volume of calibrating container and mass of sand in the above text box.

Here we have listed out the density of sand under different circumstances and conditions.

Sand Density
Sand, dry 1,600 kg/m3
Brick, common red 1,920 kg/m3
Mud, packed 1,906 kg/m3
Concrete, Gravel 2,400 kg/m3
Torpedo Sand 1,602 kg/m3
Earth, wet, excavated 1602 kg/m3
Earth, packed 1522 kg/m3
Sandstone, solid 2323 kg/m3
Gravel, loose, dry 1,520 kg/m3
Sand, loose 1442 kg/m3

#### Example

A 50 m3 container 30 kg of sand. Calculate density of sand?
Given: Mass of sand = 30 Kg Volume of calibrating container = 50 m3

Solution: Sand Density = 30/ 50 = 0.6 kg / m3
