**1 Cubic meter River & M sand weight in kg & ton**, sand weight in tonnes and pounds, sand weight per m3, hi guys in this article we know about 1 cubic metre sand weight in kg & ton and weight of 1 cubic metre of **river sand and M sand.**

Generally sand measured in various unit like **cubic metre (m3), cubic feet (cft), kilogram (kg) and ton.**

Let us discuss first, Types of sand used in construction industry, there is Two types of sand which are extensively used in construction industry is naturally present River sand and artificial human made M sand by crushing of stone.

**Do you know what is M sand?** it is artificial and manufactured sand by crushing of granite stone in Crusher mill, it has fine particles used for construction line in various work like plastering of brick wall, brick work masonry, cement mortar,concrete formation, roof slab casting and formation of column, beam, footing and slab.

**What is M sand full form?** Generally M sand full form is manufactured sand, artificial sand or human-made. It is partial replacement of river sand in today construction line.

Do you know what is River sand? River sand is found in river basin, beach & desert areas naturally, the sand which are collected naturally from riverbed and basin for various purpose in construction line are known as the river sand.

**River sand are formed by weathering** and disintegration of various types of rocks slowly like granite rocks, basalt rock, igneous rocks, sedimentary and Metamorphic rock. Generally river sand is mixture of Metamorphic, sedimentary rocks and igneous rocks.

It is naturally available and extracted from the river beds or riverbank. Naturally, river sand easy available in the market, this sand larges use in construction.

**1 Cubic meter River & M sand weight in kg & ton**

Weight of river and M sand calculated in terms of m3 (cubic metre) & CFT (cubic feet), cubic yards, tons and pounds.

Sand is one of the important ingredients at making concrete mortar & plaster, etc. Earth scientists and organization’s are now promoting the use of M-Sand (Manufactured Sand).

While measuring the quantity of sand at construction site in cubic meter you have the choice of selecting which type of sand you have required for purchasing for construction. If you purchase M sand then 1 cubic meter of M sand weight is slightly higher than River sand.

Generally sand available in market are in various categories wet loose sand, wet compact sand, dry loose sand & dry compact sand, All of category of sand some weight are vary. But in this calculation we take average

**Average density of sand** is 1620 kg/m3, it means 1620 kg sand occupy 1 cubic metre of space or container, 1 cubic meter sand weight = 1620kg, so 1620kg is weight of 1 cubic meter sand.

**Sand weight**

**Sand weight**:- in United State, according to US customary measurement system, for estimating purpose, a cubic yard sand weighs/ weight around 2700 pounds [lbs] or 1.35 US tons [tonnes] which is approximately equal as 100 pounds or 0. 05 tons per cubic foot.

**1 cubic meter sand weight in kg**:- density of sand may vary according to their dry and moist condition and their composition, DLBD of sand is 1600 kg/m3, it means weight of 1 cubic meter of sand is approximately equal to 1600 kg or 1.6 MT.

**Sand weight per m3**:- average density of sand is 1620 kg per m3, it means 1620 kg sand occupy 1 cubic metre of space or container, 1 cubic meter sand weight = 1620kg or 1.6 tonnes, so 1620kg or 1.6 tonnes is sand weight per m3.

**How much does a cubic metre of sand weigh**?, A cubic metre of typical sand weighs about **1620kg or 1.6 tonnes** or more if damp. However, weight of sand may vary according to their dry and moist condition and their composition.

**1 cubic meter of sand to kg**:- weight of sand may vary according to their dry and moist condition and their composition, DLBD of sand is 1600 kg/m3, it means weight of 1 cubic meter of sand to kg is approximately equal to 1600 kg or 1.6 MT.

**Weight of sand per cubic meter**:- density of sand may vary according to their dry and moist condition and their composition, DLBD of sand is 1600 kg/m3, it means weight of sand per cubic meter is approximately equal to 1600 kg or 1.6 MT.

**Weight of sand per m3**:- average density of sand is 1620 kg per m3, it means 1620 kg sand occupy 1 cubic metre of space or container, 1 cubic meter sand weight = 1620kg or 1.6 tonnes, so 1620kg or 1.6 tonnes is weight of sand per m3.

**1 cubic meter sand to bags**:- generally sand bag available in 25 kg in a small size and in large size there is a bulk or jumbo bag of 0.5m3 or nearly 800kg, regarding one cubic meter sand to bags generally you need 64 bags of 25kg or 2 bulk bag of sand.

**Sand weight per cubic meter:-** sand density is 1620kgs/m3, it means 1m3 sand weight is 1620kgs, so sand weight is 1600kgs per cubic metre.

1 cubic meter sand weight = 1620kg, we have to convert sand weight in kg to ton, as we know 1 ton = 1000kg, so we divide by 1000, we will get 1 cubic metre sand weight = 1620/1000 = 1.6 ton, so 1.62 ton is weight of 1 cubic metre sand.

**Cubic meter to ton sand**

To convert cubic meter to ton sand, you multiply the given cubic meter of sand by 1.6 to get metric tons of sand, Tons of sand = Given m3 of sand ×1.6. 1 cubic metre of sand weighs around 1600kg and one metric ton or tonne equates as 1000kg, so, 1 cubic metre of sand equates to 1.6 tons or tonnes.

To convert Tons of sand to cubic meter (m3), Divide the metric tons of sand by 1.6 to get cubic meter of sand, Cubic meter of sand = Tons of sand ÷ 1.6. 1 cubic metre of sand weighs around 1600kg and one metric ton or tonne equates as 1000kg, so, 1 cubic metre of sand equates to 1.6 tons or tonnes.

**Cubic metre to tonne**:- generally 1 cubic metre of sand weighs around 1600kg and one metric ton or tonne equates as 1000kg, so cubic metre to tonne such as 1600/ 1000 = 1.6 tonnes, hence 1 cubic metre of sand equates to 1.6 tons or tonnes.

**Tonne to cubic metre**:- generally one metric ton or tonne equates as 1000kg and 1 cubic metre of sand weighs around 1600kg, so tonne to cubic metre such as 1000/ 1600 = 0.66 m3, hence 1 tonne of sand equates to 0.66 cubic metre.

**1 tonne of sand = how many m3**:- generally one metric ton or tonne equates as 1000kg and 1 cubic metre of sand weighs around 1600kg, so 1 tonne of sand to cubic metre such as 1000/ 1600 = 0.66 m3, hence 1 tonne of sand equates to 0.66 m3.

**1 cubic meter River sand weight: **River sand is found in river basin, beach & desert areas naturally, the sand which are collected naturally from riverbed and basin for various purpose in construction line are known as the river sand. People have choice to purchase river sand for their construction work. And they were want to know weight of 1 cubic metre of river sand

Average density of River sand is 1650 kg/m3, it means 1650 kg river sand occupy 1 cubic metre of space or container, 1 cubic meter of River sand weight = 1650kg, so 1650kg is weight of 1 cubic meter of river sand.

1 cubic meter river sand weight = 1650kg, we have to convert river sand weight in kg to ton, as we know 1 ton = 1000kg, so we divide by 1000, we will get 1 cubic metre river sand weight = 1650/1000 = 1.65 ton, so 1.65 ton is weight of 1 cubic metre river sand.

**1 cubic meter M sand weight: **M sand is artificial and manufactured sand by crushing of granite stone in Crusher mill, it has fine particles used for construction line in various work like plastering of brick wall, brick work masonry, cement mortar,concrete formation, roof slab casting and formation of column, beam, footing and slab. M sand weight is slightly higher than River sand.

Average density of M sand is 1750 kg/m3, it means 1750 kg M sand occupy 1 cubic metre of space or container, 1 cubic meter of M sand weight = 1750kg, so 1750kg is weight of 1 cubic meter of M sand.

1 cubic meter M sand weight = 1750kg, we have to convert M sand weight in kg to ton, as we know 1 ton = 1000kg, so we divide by 1000, we will get 1 cubic metre M sand weight = 1750/1000 = 1.75 ton, so 1.75 ton is weight of 1 cubic metre M sand.
