## General Portland cement

General or common purpose Portland cement type (not any other weaker/cheaper cement replacement-version). It's the primary masonry binder hence bonding agent for mortars and concretes consisting of building sand, stones or other gravel aggregate, mixed with water.

By standard practice, when freshly poured, Portland cement has unit volume mass of 94 lbs/cu-ft - 1506 kg/m3 (but it becomes denser as the storage time is prolonged, when it gets compressed or vibrated; in such situations its weight per volume can increase to as high as 104 lbs/cu-ft). This calculator is based on the fresh form Portland cement w/ the standard mass properties of 94 pounds to 1 cubic foot.
