If you mix cement ,sand and water you get mortar If you mix cement and stone pebbles or chips you get concrete Concrete.Sometimes gravel is mixed with it, too.

Concrete :- a mix of cement, sand, water, and gravel. Mortar :- a mix of cement, sand, and water

sand=2*Weight of Cement water=cement/2

cement/ concrete is made with water, cement mixture and sand. After all of this is added to the right amount, you mix, mix, mix!! Then bofore it drys, pour it ontop the location desired

Sand / cement ratio = 3 , that means: 1 part of cement to 3 parts of sand by volume , with sufficient water to get workable mixture.

If you have added too much water to your mix just add more sand and cement ;but do this right away.

The water should be added last. All the aggregate materials and the cement should be thoroughly mixed before the water is added.

Concrete mix is made from (sharp)sand, cement, aggregate and water. The ratios depent on the usage

just get a gravel, sand, and cement and then mix it with a little amount of water.

You would have: 1 part cement 5 parts of Ballast (Sand, gravel mix) And then add water till you get the disired mix quality

Cement mixed with sand and water makes mortar.

one part hydrated lime, three parts medium grade sand, two parts Portland cement and water as required or needed

A basic mixture for general use (paths, etc) is: 1 cement : 2 sand : 3 gravel by volume. Mix ingredients dry and add water until the concrete is workable. If too sloppy it may be weak, if too dry it may be difficult to work with.A basic mortar mix (brick laying, etc) is: 1 water : 2 cement : 3 sand.

Aggregate (rocks), sand, and portland cement. And water, initially. That's a typical mix.

Yes, you can mix water based paint with cement. It will cause the cement to mix bind better

The sand and stone adds a binding quality to the cement making the concrete or plaster stronger than pure cement.

THE MIX add your waterproofing and plasticiser to your water butt and fill with water then stir thoroughly add approx a bucket full of this mixture to your cement mixer the cement mix should be consistant and mixed to the following specs parts: cement : 4: soft washed sand :10: sharp sand :2: this gives a ratio of 3-1 a strong mix, you could use a 4-1

Concrete is stronger than mortar because mortar is a mixture of cement, sand and water but concrete is a mixture of cement, sand, gravel and water. Thus concrete forms a stiff mix than mortar.

Concrete is what you make a sidewalk from. To make concrete, you mix Portland cement, sand, gravel (aggregate) and water. The cement holds the aggregate together.

500 pounds cement, 1500 pounds sand, 1600 pounds gravel. Mix with 32 gallons water

I would mix it, 1 cement, 1 sharp sand, 4 ballast.

Add the water to the cement, a little at a time as you mix.

Concrete is stronger than mortar.Because mortar is a mixture of cement, sand and water but concrete is a mixture of cement, sand, gravel and water. Thus concrete forms a stiff mix than mortar.Hence the concrete is more stronger than cement.
