**bulk**densities for dry

**sand**range from around 1500 to 1700 kg per

**cubic**metre. Depending on the mineralogy of the

**sand**, and the degree of compaction. Let us run with 1600 kg/

**m3**. so, a

**cubic**metre weighs a tonne (that's the lingo for 1000 kg in my island).

In this regard, how many cubic meters are in a bulk bag?

Also called “dumpy **bags**” or “**bulk bags**”, the most common size can hold about 0.7 **cubic metres** of logs which, being less dense than sand or gravel, will weigh considerably less than a ton.

Secondly, how many bags of sand do I need for a bulk bag? 36 to 40 assuming it's a ton **bag**, depending on how big your ton is.

Similarly, it is asked, how many cubic meters are in a bag of sand?

To answer **how many bags of sand** in 1 **cubic metre**, we have to ask what sort of **sand** we want. The density varies from 1442 kg/cum for loose **sand**, 1602 for dry, 1682 for rammed, 1922 for wet and 2082 kg/cum for wet packed.

How many cubic meters is a 20kg bag of sand?

Yield: One **20kg bag** will cover an area of 1.1m2 to a depth of approximately 10mm. Or 108 x **20kg bags** equates to one **cubic metre** of mixed concrete. **20kg bags** can be bought individually or as a pallet of 70.
