100 cft River & M sand weight in kg & ton | Sand weight

100 cft River & M sand weight in kg & ton, hi guys in this article we know about 100 cft (cubic feet) sand weight in kg & ton and weight of 100 cft 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, besalt 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.

100 cft River & M sand weight in kg & ton

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

100 cft River & M sand weight in kg & ton

100 cft River & M sand weight in kg & ton

Sand is one of the important ingredients at making concrete mortar & plaster, etc.
Earth scientists and organizations 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 purchasind 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 1m3 sand weight = 1620 kg, as we know 1m3 = 35.3147 cft, so 35.3147 cft sand weight = 1620kg, so 1cft sand weight = 1620/35.3147 = 45.87kg, 100 cft sand weight = 45.87×100=4587kg, so 4587 kg is weight of 100 CFT sand.

100 cft sand weight = 4587kg, we have to convert sand weight in kg to ton, as we know 1 ton = 1000kg, so we divide by 1000, we will get 100 cft sand weight = 4587/1000 = 4.587 ton, so 4.587 ton is weight of 100 cft 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. People have choice to purchase river sand for their construction work. And they were want to know weight of 100 cft of river sand

Average density of river sand is 1650 kg/m3, it means 1m3 river sand weight = 1650 kg, as we know 1m3 = 35.3147 cft, so 35.3147 cft river sand weight = 1650kg, so 1cft river sand weight = 1650/35.3147 = 46.72kg, 100 cft river sand weight = 46.72×100=4672kg, so 4672 kg is weight of 100 CFT river sand.

100 cft river sand weight = 4672kg, 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 100 cft river sand weight = 4672/1000 = 4.672 ton, so 4.672 ton is weight of 100 cft river 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. M sand weight is slightly higher than River sand.

Average density of M sand is 1750 kg/m3, it means 1m3 M sand weight = 1750 kg, as we know 1m3 = 35.3147 cft, so 35.3147 cft M sand weight = 1750kg, so 1cft M sand weight = 1750/35.3147 = 49.55kg, 100 cft M sand weight = 49.55×100=4955kg, so 4955 kg is weight of 100 CFT M sand.

100 cft M sand weight = 4955kg, 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 100 cft M sand weight = 4955/1000 = 4.955 ton, so 4.955 ton is weight of 100 cft M sand.
