QUESTION: Ya there is a difference but how to  calculate the densities accordingly

Answer
Dear Ramesh

I dont know a definite relationship about this subject. But for the density of concrete before hydratation you can use the general way of calculation of weights. After the concrete hydratation is complete the density is related to the void ratio of the stone texture and is different from one sample to the other.
