    1. BUlk density of the sand means if you collect 1 CuM of natural sand and weight , the weight shall be equivalent to bulk density. This means we are measuring sand with the air pockets and with natural spacing /orientation of the sand particles.
      If we take out the air voids and compact the sand to the maximum extent possible , the weight now taken shall be more than bulk density and shall be almost equal to the specific gravity of the sand.
