This tool will calculate the number of bags of sand you need for your project.

## How to Use the Sand Calculator

This calculator helps you determine how many bags of sand you will need based on the given measurements.

### Instructions:

- Enter the length of the area in meters.
- Enter the width of the area in meters.
- Enter the depth of the sand layer in centimeters.
- Enter the size of the sand bag in kilograms.
- Click the “Calculate” button to find out how many bags you need.

### How it Calculates:

The calculator first converts the depth from centimeters to meters. It then calculates the volume of the area by multiplying length, width, and depth. Using the average density of dry sand (1602 kg/m³), it calculates the total weight of the sand required. Finally, it divides the total weight by the bag size to determine the number of bags needed and rounds up to ensure you have enough sand.

### Limitations:

- The density of sand can vary depending on moisture content and type, so the result is an estimate.
- Make sure to adjust for any slope or irregular shapes, as the calculator assumes a rectangular and level area.
