The word "brass" refers to a measure of quantity for loose material (like sand, metal, etc). This term is common in India.

One brass equals one hundred cubic feet volume.

Calculate the volume of sand and divide by 100 cubic feet to get the number of brass units.

1 brass means simply 100cuft
eg. 10′ × 10′ × 1′ for 3D quantity sand,aggregate, stone, soil etc
1 brass sand = 100 cubic foot of sand
1 brass sand =4528 kg
1 cum sand wt. = 1600 kg
1 brass = 2.83 cum
wt. of sand in 1 brass = 4528 kg ( 1600*2.83 )
Hope this is helpful to you…

### How many metric tons become 1 brass?

1 brass sand = 4.528 Metric tones (tonnes)
That's because 1 brass = 100 cub ft sand.
In metric, 1 cubic meter (cum) = 1600 Kg sand.
1 cubft = 0.0283 cum
Therefore, 1 brass = 100 x 0.0283 x 1600 = 4528 Kg = 4.528
metric tones (or 'tonnes')
That's for dry sand. If it has been raining or the sand is taken
from a wet shore, this increases, on average, to 5.09 tonne.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Chemistry

### How do you calculate the mass of sand in a container?

To calculate it find the volume of the sand in the container and
multiply this by the density of the sand in the container.
A much easier way to find the mass of the sand is to weight the
container with the sand in it, empty the sand out of the container
(and into another container if you want to keep the sand),
re-weight the now empty container and subtract this weight from the
first.

### How can you tell the difference between gold and gold plated brass?

1. Gold is denser than brass: weigh the object, and determine
its volume (e.g. by measuring the displacement when it is sunk into
water in a graduated cylinder). Calculate the density. Gold will
come out near 19.4 grams/cubic centimetre; brass near 8.6
g/cm3.
2. Rub against the unglazed ceramic object, real gold leave gold
streak brass plated will leave brass streak.
