What is bulk density. Could anyone please explain ?

Kishori Pant said: (Apr 12, 2014)  
Bluk density is a measurement of soil mass per unit volume of soil.

Sonu Jangra said: (Nov 14, 2014)  
Bulk density is defined as the dry weight of soil per unit volume of soil. Bulk density considers both the solids and the pore space; whereas, particle density considers only the mineral solids.

Najimul Mondal said: (Mar 13, 2015)  
The bulk density is the total mass of the soil per unit of its total volume.

The shape and size of container does affect the calculation of bulk density practically, thus Indian standards have specific containers used, on the basis of trial and error methods.

Chiranjeev Mcet said: (Sep 20, 2015)  
Bulk density means change in volume of any material.

Md Khalid said: (Feb 10, 2016)  
Bulk density is defined as weight of materials per unit volume.

Aneesha said: (Apr 5, 2016)  
According to the size of the container, the volume will change.

Bulk density means the weight of soil to the unit volume. In this unit volume means container volume. If we change the volume bulk density will change.

Why the size and shape of container do not depend on bulk density?

Pankaj Raut said: (Aug 6, 2016)  
Bulk density of aggregate = weight of aggregate in a container/weight of water in same container.

Kasturi said: (Oct 26, 2017)  
Please give me the right answer. If the volume of the container is used, then why option (D) correct?

Dineshkumar said: (Nov 2, 2017)  
Bulk density is defined as the mass required to fill a container of unit volume.

Sunil said: (Jan 12, 2018)  
@Kasturi.

Because size may be vary not fix the for the same volume.

Ex cube for 2m side each equal to cuboid of 4*2*1.

Forid Alam said: (Oct 28, 2018)  
The bulk density is the total mass of the soil per unit of its total volume.

Bulk density of aggregate = weight of aggregate in a container/weight of water in same container.

The specific gravity of aggregate is the right answer.
