science geology# What is the concrete density?

Last Updated: 10th January, 2020

**density**of

**concrete**varies, but is around 2,400 kilograms per cubic metre (150 lb/cu ft). Reinforced

**concrete**is the most common form of

**concrete**.

Also know, how do you find the density of concrete?

**Density** is otherwise known as “mass per unit volume”. So, divide the mass by the volume to get **density**. Hardened **concrete**: If the specimen is a regular shape, get the volume by taking the principal dimensions, then divide the mass by the volume to get the **density**.

why is the density of concrete important? The mechanical properties of **concrete** are highly influenced by its **density**. A denser **concrete** generally provides higher strength and fewer amount of voids and porosity. Smaller the voids in **concrete**, it becomes less permeable to water and soluble elements.

Also question is, what is the density of RCC concrete?

**R.C.C.** is 2400 kg. / cubic meter. These **densities** are for estimate purpose. Actual **density** could vary slightly depending on the **density** of coarse aggregates.

What is the density of cement in kg m3?

I believe the standard **density** of 1 **cement** bag is equal to 1440 **kg**/**m3**. **Density** = mass/volume (ρ=m/V) So, V=m/ρ 50 **kg** ÷ 1440 **kg**/**m3** = 0.0347 **m3** = 1.23 CFT.
