Good you asked, interesting (like with old Beta or VHS.) You don't have sand or clay at home yet so here goes:

Liters to pounds in dry clay and dry sand (i measured dry fine loam sand and fireclay used for refractory mortars.)

1 Liter of dry clay = 1.6 Kg or 3 1/2 lbs
1 Liter of dry sand = 1.45 Kg or 3 1/5 lbs

***Additional help;
what's heavier 1Kg of iron or 1Kg of feathers? ;o)

1 kilogram = 2.20462262 pounds exactly
1 pound = 0.45359237 kilogram

Pounds to Kilograms:
multiply pounds by 0.45 to get number of kilograms

My page on "Conversions of Measures" linked here below, if someone needed other medium to measure.
