### How many grams of sand in one half of the can of the sand?

Depends on the size of the can and the density of the sand.

### How do you measure specific gravity of sand?

Determine the density of the sand. Determine the mass of the sand, and it's volume. Divide the mass by the volume and that gives you density. Then divide the sand's density by the density of water. That will give you the specific gravity of the sand. Because you divide densities, the units cancel out, and specific gravity does not have any units. For example, you determine the density of the sand to be 10g/cm3, and the density of pure water is known to be 1g/cm3. Divide 10g/cm3 by 1g/cm3. The g/cm3 cancel, and you are left with just the number 10. So in this example the specific gravity of sand is 10.

### Why does compacted sand have a greater density than loose sand poured into a container What does this mean?

In compacted sand the grains of sand are closer together, meaning there are more grains in a certain volume. This gives a higher value for density.

### Why is there sand at a river mouth?

The river runs however long, all the while picking up sediment, sand, rocks, etc. and continue doing this for the river's length, and at the very end of the river (mouth), all of this sediment is deposited, leaivng sand at the river mouth.
