Does Sand Weigh More Than Water?

Answer

In order to determine whether sand or water weighs more, you need to consider the density of both. A cup of sand will obviously weigh more than a cup of water because it is more dense and will sink in the water. This is why sand stays at the bottom of the ocean floor. Sand clearly weighs more than water.
