Calculations of quantity of sand in 1 meter cube is very easy if you know following three basic things
- Formula: Weight = density x volume
- Density of sand
- Unit conversation
Weight of sand= Density of sand x Volume of sand
here, Volume of sand =1 cubic meter
Assume, Bulk density of sand = 1650 kg/m^3
Weight = 1650 x 1 = 1650 kg
Bulk density of sand is in the range of 1520 – 1680 kg/cum.
Therefore we need 1520 to 1680 kg per cubic meter
1 m^3=35.3147 CFT
Quantity of sand in CFT = 1/35.3147 = 0.0283 CFT
