**MathMate**, Sunday, February 6, 2011 at 10:13am"The dry rodded unit weight of aggregate is determined by compacting dry aggregate into a container of a known specific volume according to standard procedures."

It is not known if the gravel was compacted as per standards into the 1 ft³ container. If it was, the dry rodded unit weight is 100 lb/ft³. If it was not, the dry rodded weight is likely to be slightly higher, but in any case, not exceeding 62.4*2.68=167 lb/ft³.

The specific gravity refers to the specific gravity of the material, i.e. a solid chunk of the material, without voids.
