Re: Weight of 1 liter wet sand
I was curious about what a 2 liter bottle full of wet sand would weigh was just looking to see if i did math correctly.
If wet sand being 3500 lb/yr3 3500/27sf (27 sf3 per cubic yard) = 129.258 lb/ft3
So..
1 liter being 61.02 in3
Using the same one for gallons just subing liter for gallon..
129.258 x 61.02/1728 = 4.564 lb of wet sand per liter
That right?

129.6296 lb/ft3 * (61.02 in3/L / 1728 in3/ft3) = 4.5778 lb/L
So, a 2 L bottle of this wet sand would weigh 9.1556 lb

Re: Sand weight
ok i wanted to know what a piece of pvc pipe 1in and 1.5in in diameter and 6 foot long would weigh when filled with dry sand so here's my math:
3.14x.5^2x72=56.6in cubed
100(56.6/1728)=3.27lbs
3.14x.8^2x72=145in cubed
100(145/1728)=8.39lbs
is my math right?
