How many cubic feet are in a a 40 lb bag of sand?

How many cubic feet are in a a 40 lb bag of sand?

A friend and I are putting in an extension of his mom's patio. I'm trying to figure up how much sand we need. So if anyone knows the answer to my question it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Dry sand is 100 lb/cu ft, so 40 lb = 0.4 cu ft. More info here on wet sand, packed sand, sewage sludge and a whole lot more

That just doesn't sound correct. 100 lbs for a 12" box...I think not.

I think Eric is correct. I just lugged around 50 bags for a walkway I am building. Each bag is around .4 - .5 cubic foot. That's half a cubic foot. Give us the dimensions of what you are constructing.

We are going to be laying down some sand and then putting cement bricks over it. The area is 55 sq. ft. X 2" deep. I think I figured it will be a little over 9 cu. ft. of sand that we will need.

If you want an accurate number, find out what the density of the sand you're using is.
