Question from joel, a student:

What is the density of saw dust

Hi Joel,

The place where I look for densities is the SImetric site in the UK. They give the density of sawdust as 210 kilograms per cubic metre. To obtain the density in other units ask Google. For example typing 210 kilograms per cubic metre to ounces per cubic inch into Google get the response (210 kilograms) per (cubic meter) = 0.121387701 ounces per (cubic inch).
