Well, darling, a gallon of sand weighs approximately 12-15 pounds, so a 3-gallon bucket could hold around 36-45 pounds of sand. But let's be real, who's really out here measuring sand by the pound when you can just fill up the darn bucket and call it a day?

5 gallons of concrete will fit.

Five gallons.

The specific gravity of sand is between 90-130 lbs/cubic foot. http://www.reade.com/Particle_Briefings/spec_gra2.html#S 5 US gallons = 0.668402778 cubic feet 90 * 0.66840277 = 60.15625002 130 * 0.668402778 = 86.89236114 So, a 5 gallon bucket will hold between 60 and 87 pounds of sand, depending on how much liquid is in the sand and if it is packed down.

there are 49700 pop tabs in a 5 gallon water jug

# Start with empty buckets, and carry them to the well. # (Note that the larger is the 7-gallon bucket, and the smaller is the 4-gallon bucket.) # Fill the 4-gallon bucket with water to the top. # Empty all the water from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket. # (Note that there is room in the 7-gallon bucket for exactly 3 more gallons.) # Fill the 4-gallon bucket again. # Pour from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket all the water that will fit, spilling none. # (Note that since there was room for only 3 more gallons in the 7-gallon bucket, you now have 1 gallon left in the 4-gallon bucket.) # Dump out all the water from the 7-gallon bucket. (Pour it back into the well or onto some flowers so it's not wasted.) # Pour the 1 gallon of water that remains in the 4-gallon bucket into the empty 7-gallon bucket. # Refill the 4-gallon bucket completely. # Pour all the 4 gallons from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket. # (Note that since the 7-gallon bucket had 1 gallon already and you added 4 gallons, you now have 5 gallons of water in the 7-gallon bucket!) # Bring back your 7-gallon bucket that's holding exactly 5 gallons of water. (Bring your 4-gallon bucket back too, in case you want to play again!)

A million grains of sand is not very big at all. A million grains of sand can fit in a single small bucket.
