# Voids and Density

**Cleaned rock should in principle be lighter than unwashed, as there are clean gaps in clean rock. These gaps can clearly be filled, say 60%, by smaller particles. Thus uncleaned gravel should weigh 60% of 40% more, or 25% more. Clean rock thus should be 25% more valueable for the weight - it will take more volume.**
- 40% voids typi
- ASTM 57 is 2400 lb/yard
- 2" minus is 3200 lb/cu meter [1]
- 100 pcf for 3" and 125 pcf for 3" minus [2]
- 3/4" unwashed is 1.3 tons per yard [3]
