What is Density of Materials?
The density of a material can be defined as the mass of material per unit volume and designated by these symbol ρ (rho). The Standard Units of density is kg / m^{3} and customary U.S. unit of density is lb/ft^{3}.
Density is an key characteristic property of a material and varies with pressure and temperature

Density of Sand (Sand Density)
Sand is one of the most Important ingredients in concrete making. Density is also an important parameter for sand. To determine the density of sand, by multiplying the relative density of the sand times the density of water.
Bulk Density of Sand
The bulk density or unit weight of sand is the weight or mass of the sand that required to fill a container of a specified unit volume.
Bulk Density of sand = ^{Mass od sand}/_{volume}
The bulk density of sand approximate that is usually used in normal- weight concrete is between 1520-1680 kg/m^{3} (95-105 lb/ft^{3})
