What is Bulk Density?

What is bulk density? In simplistic terms it’s defined as the mass per unit volume of powders or granules in a bulk state. 

When you’re handling solids or powders, a bulk material’s weight in lb./ft3 or g/cm3 is often an important number. Processors often have the weights of the materials they handle memorized. 

Don't know the bulk density of your materials yet?
