What is the density of dirt?
According to this document "NIST Handbook Specifications and Tolerances for Field Standard Weight Carts", at the US NIST, the average density of dirt is 120 lbs per cubic foot.

Density is a physical characteristic, and is a measure of mass per unit of volume of a material or substance. Density is mass divided by volume. It is a measurement of the amo…unt of matter in a given volume of something. Density is a very important property which can be used to identify a substance. The higher an object's density, the higher its mass per unit of volume. The average density of an object equals its total mass divided by its total volume. A denser object (such as iron) will have less volume than an equal mass of some less dense substance (such as water). Water is the reference with its highest density at 3.98 Â°C ( Ï = 1 g/cm 3 ) and the correct SI unit of density Ï = 1000 kg/m 3 . 1 m 3 = 1,000,000 cm 3. Density Examples: Solid - water - noble gas Copper has a density of 8950 kg/m 3 = 8.95 kg/dm 3 = 8.95 g/cm 3 . Water has a density of 1000 kg/m 3 = 1000 g/L = 1.000 kg/dm 3 = 1.000 kg/L = 1.000 g/cm 3 = 1.000 g/mL. Helium has a density of 0.1785 kg/m3 = 0.1785 g/L = 0.0001785 kg/dm 3 = 0.0001785 kg/L = 0.0001785 g/cm 3 = 0.0001785 g/mL. High density also means that the protons, neutrons and electrons can be tightly packed together which is controlled by the internal electric force. When a substance is heated, it usually expands because the atoms start to vibrate and take up more space, resulting in density gets lower. .
You do mass divided by volume.
Density is the measurement of a material which is weighed relative to its volume, it is measured as kg/m3, Aniq khan
any foul or filthy substance, as mud, grime, dust, or excrementDirt the mixture of sand, rock pieces, organic matter, and otherelements. It is found on the ground and is what …plants grow in andis also called soil.
Five main things in dirt are:. Rocks and Minerals . Air . Poop . Decaying plants . water
Weight or mass per volume.
it is the proportion between the mass and the volume of an object, you can calculate it with this formula: M(mass) / V(volume)
density is the things that sink and float in water or in any other liquid
Dirt is dirt there is nothing in it.
Density is the measure of pounds per square inch it would be important if you designed tanks because you would need to know what density of the tanks armor it would need to be… same as in a submarine.
"dirt" is an extremely vague description and is virtually useless. There are hundreds of kinds of soil, sand and crushed stone that all have different weights and volumes.
it all builds up
Density can be thought of as how compacted something is. Density is calculated by mass divided by volume.
Density is the amount of mass that can fit into a given volumewithin an object or substance.
