The density of sea sand 
20141102 

Lenny pose la question : Hi There,
I need to find out the the density of sea sand to convert one metric ton to cubic
meter as I am submitting for a tender which is in cubic meter but the requirement
is in metric ton. I searched through the web site but no density of sea sand is given
though there is specific Gravity of dry sand is available. I was given a density of
1.6 to work with. If that is true am I right to say that 1 cubic meter of sea sand is
equivalent to 1.6 metric ton? Please help as I am getting confused with what I am
able to find out on the web.
Thanks much in advance
