the volume you are asking for depends on the density of the sand i.e. the type of sand
density = mass / volume
volume = mass / density from the weight you mentioned (one pound ) we can get its mass
weight = mass x g (free fall acceleration)

volume = weight/g/density

What is the principle is involved in determining the volume of sand in water?

You can very accurately determine the volume of sand using water. If you just take some sand and measure the volume, a lot of the volume you measure is actually the empty space between the sand crystals. If you want the true volume of the sand, you must use the water method.To do this, start with a known volume of water (use a graduated cylinder for instance). Record this volume. The weigh out a certain amount of sand, and add this sand to the water. When you do that, the volume of the water will increase. Record this new volume. Then simply subtract the initial volume from the final volume. This difference is the volume of the sand particles. You can also calculate the density of sand by this method since you weighed the sand before adding it, and the density is just weight ÷ volume.
