Weight of sand vary depending on the shape of the grains, size of the grains, the material content, its crystalline nature, its density of grain, mineral factors, wet and dry condition, loose sand, compacted sand, washed sand, marine sand, beach sand and moisture content is prime factor that determining the weight of sand.

Sand is a granular material composed of finely divided fragments of sedimentary, Metamorphic and igneous rock with mineral particles. Particle size of sand ranging from 0.05mm to 2mm, their grain particles are smaller than gravel and coarser than silt.

Rocks eroded or weather over a long period of time mainly by water, wind, alkaline and acidic effect. Their eroded parts or sediment transported along the downstream, it sediments even broken into a smaller pieces and till they become a fine grain of sand.

There is different density of of sand according to moisture condition and compactness, based on Imperial or US customary measurement system dry loose sand weght around 1.442 kg/ litre, for dry sand their weight could be 1.602 kg/litre, for dry sand packed their weight could be 1.682 kg/litre, for wet sand their weight could be 1.92 kg/litre, for beach dry sand their weight could be 1.53kg/litre and for wet packed sand their weight could be 2.82 kg/litre. But for estimating purpose, on average weight of sand around is 1600kg/m3 or 1.6 kg/ litre.

As 1 litre of sand weight about 1.6 kg, in United states, 1 US gallon is equal to 3.785 litres, so weight of 3.785 litres of sand = 1.6× 3.785 = 6.056kg, which is exactly equal to 13.35 pounds, and in united kingdom, 1 UK or Imperial gallon is equal to 4.546 litres, so weight of 4.546 litres of sand = 1.6× 4.546 = 7.27kg, which is exactly equal to 16 pounds.

Weight of sand depends on the rocks type, loose and dense condition, compact, moisture content, dry and wet condition, river sand, beach sand and washed sand and others inorganic mixed in the sand.
