# 100 CFT River & M sand weight in kg & ton | Sand weight

The weight of 100 cubic feet of river and m sand can vary and depends on source of sand, grain size, loose, dry, compact and wet conditions. The moisture content of sand is prime factor to find weight of a typical sand.

A 100 cubic foot of sand in short form written as 100 CFT means when we write CFT, then it means cubic feet. A 100 CFT is volume (length × width × thickness in feet) measurement of sand.

The typical weight of a 100-cubic foot of river and M sand can vary, but on average, river sand weighs around 2,750 pounds (1,248 kg) per cubic yard, and M sand weighs about 2,950 pounds (1,340 kg) per cubic yard. Therefore, 100 CFT of river sand weighs approximately 4,700 kg or 4.7 metric tons, while 100 CFT of M sand weighs about 4,950 kg or 4.95 metric tons.

The amount of sand measured in volume and mass. Volume of sand measured in imperial unit in cubic yard, cubic feet (CFT) and cubic meter based on metric system unit. Mass of sand measured in pounds, kilograms, and in tons.

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 purchased for construction. If you purchase M sand then 1 cubic meter of M sand weight is slightly higher than River sand.

## What is River & M sand

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?

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.

### What is M sand full form?

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

### Do you know what is River sand?

The 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.

### Density of river and M sand

In general, the average density of M sand is 1750 kg/m3, while the average density of river sand is 1650 kg/m3. Likewise, the average density of dry sand is 1600 kg/m3, while the average density of wet sand is 1922 kg/m3. In addition, the average density of loose and dry sand is 1420 kg/m3.

### How much does sand weigh

On average, the typical weight of natural dry sand is about 1600 kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m³), 2,700 pounds per cubic yard (lbs/yd³), 100 pounds per cubic foot (lbs/ft³), 45 kilograms per cubic foot (kg/cft), 0.058 pounds per cubic inch (lbs/inch³), 0.94278 ounce per cubic inch (oz/inch³), 12.5 pounds per gallon, 1.6 kilograms per liter (kg/liter), or 3.52 pounds per liter (lbs/liter).

## 100 cft River & M sand weight in kg or tons

The weight of river and M sand calculated in terms of volume in several standard units like m3 (cubic metre), cubic yard & CFT (cubic feet).

The average density of M sand is 1750 kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m3), means one cubic meter of M sand is typically weight about 1750 kilograms.

The average density of river sand is 1650 kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m3), means one cubic meter of river sand is typically weight about 1650 kilograms.

A 100 cubic foot of river sand commonly weighs about 4,700 kilograms or 4.7 metric tons, depending on composition and moisture content. Likewise, a 100 cubic foot of M sand commonly weighs about 4950 kilograms or 5 tons approximately.

In general, a 100 CFT of river sand weighs about 4,700 kg, while a 100 CFT of M sand weighs about 4,950 kg. Likewise, a 100 CFT of dry sand weighs about 4,500 kg, while a 100 CFT of wet sand weighs about 5,400 kg. In addition, a 100 CFT of loose dry sand weighs about 4,000 kg.

In general, 1 CFT of river sand weighs about 47 kg, while 1 CFT of M sand weighs about 49.5 kg. Likewise, a 1 CFT of dry sand weighs about 45 kg, while a 1 CFT of wet sand weighs about 54 kg. In addition, a 1 CFT of loose dry sand weighs about 40 kg.

### Weight of 100 CFT of M sand

The typical weight of 100 CFT (1 unit, or 1 brass) of M Sand is about 4,950 kilograms or 5 tons approximately. In general 1 m3 (or 35.32 CFT) of M sand weighs about 1,750 kg, so weight of 1 unit (100 CFT) of M sand is (100/35.32) × 1,750 = 4,950 kg, or approximately 5 tonnes.

### Weight of 100 CFT of river sand

The typical weight of 100 CFT of river Sand is about 4,700kg (or 4.7 tonnes). Weight of 1m3 or 35.32 CFT of river Sand is about 1,650kg. So, a typical 100 CFT river Sand weight = (1650/35.32)× 100 = approx. 4,700kg (or 4.7 MT).

### Weight of 100 CFT of natural dry sand

The typical weight of 100 CFT of natural dry sand is about 4,500kg (or 4.5 tonnes). Weight of 1m3 or 35.32 CFT of dry sand is about 1,600kg. So, a typical 100 CFT of dry sand weight = (1600/35.32)× 100 = approx. 4,500kg (or 4.5 MT).

### 1 ton m sand to CFT

1 ton M sand have how many cft?, in general, one ton of M sand is equal to 20 CFT. In general, 1 ton M sand weighs 1000 kg and 1 CFT M sand weighs nearly 50 kg, so 1 ton m sand equal to 1000/50 = 20 CFT.

### 1 ton river sand to CFT

1 ton river sand have how many cft?, in general, one ton of river sand is equal to 21.25 CFT. In general, 1 ton river sand weigh 1000 kg and 1 CFT river sand weighs 47 kg, so 1 ton river sand equal to 1000/47 = 21.25 CFT.

### 1 ton of sand means

There are three types of ton or tonne used for measurement of weight, in United State, 1 ton or tonne of sand weighs around 2000 lb whereas in united Kingdom it is around 2240 pounds and in metric system it will be 1000 kg.
