# Dry Bulk Density of Soil Calculator

The mass of the soil per unit volume is known as the soil dry bulk density. It is generally expressed in megagrams per cubic metre (Mg/m3) but the numerically expressed in g/cm3. Soils with a bulk density higher than 1.6 g/cm3 have a tendency to restrict root growth. In this calculator, you can calculate the soil dry bulk density based on the mass and volume of the soil.

#### Formula:

ρ_{b} = M_{s} / V_{t}
**Where,**
ρ_{b} = Dry Bulk Density
M_{s} = Mass of Soil
V_{t} = Volume
