Enter the total length, width, and depth of the area you are filling with sand to determine the total volume and weight of sand needed as well as the cost and number of bags.

Sand Calculator Formula

The following formula is used by the calculator above to calculate the total weight of sand used to fill a space. To calculate the weight of sand needed, multiply the length, width, thickness, and density together.

m = L * W * T * D

• Where m is the weight/mass
• L is the length
• W is the width
• T is the thickness/depth
• and D is the density (typically 100 lbs per cubic foot)

Further information can be determined once the weight of sand is known. For example, the total cost can be calculated with the following formula.

C = m * p/m
