One cubic metre of concrete weighs 2.5 Tonnes. Typically, 1m3 of concrete is made up of 350Kg of cement, 700Kg of sand, 1,200Kg of chippings and 150 Litres of water.

**How is bucket capacity measured?**

The total amount of material carried by a bucket is the amount inside the bucket plus the amount piled on top of it. This is called the Heaped or Rated Capacity. The amount of material piled on top of the bucket, (heap), is determined by the angle of repose of the material being handled.

#### What is the volume of sand?

**How do you calculate the volume of sand in water?**

1. Put the sand in the container 2. Now slowly add metered quantity of the water to the sand until the sand becomes just wet. 3. Now the simple calculation for volume of sand is 1 cubic meter – amount of water added gives the volume of sand. Dissolve the sand in known quantity of water .

**How many bags of cement are required for 1 cubic meter concrete?**

Cement : Sand : Aggregate (in Kgs) is 50 kgs : 115 kgs : 209 kgs (by weight) Total weight of concrete ingredients = 50+115+209+27.5 = 401.5 say 400 kg No. of bags required for 01 cum of concrete = 1/0.167 = 5.98 bags ~ 6 bags From above, if the concrete mix is 1:2:4 , to get a cubic meter of concrete we require
