    Can anyone here figure out using the density of sand which is 2.3 g/mL to find out the pressure Kimi withstood when fighting Gaara?

    If Kimimaro's height is necessary for this, he was even with Rock Lee so consider him 62 inches(5 feet 2) tall





    I don't know if anything is measurable out of these





    and the last one




    and this is the source for the density of sand

    Isn't Gaara's sand supposed to be stronger than average sand?

    ^ yeah, that's where the whole problem already starts. Gara claimed that he had extracted only the strongest minerals from the ground and mixed them into the sand when he made that shield against Kimimaro. It's basically impossible to accurately calculate the density of the sand now since its not your average pile of sand anymore.

    Well if you consider there surroundings you could probaly determine the minerals in the ground

    Probably some iron ore and maybe tungsten or something

    Still won't tell you anything about the composition of Gara's sand since we don't know about the quantities.

    I'll see what I can do when I get back from work. Sand is almost entirely silicone normally. Most of the sand Gaara uses is in fact normal sand since he mostly uses (with the exception of the sand in the gourd) sand he creates from the ground. The extraction of minerals is the creation of sand. Otherwise it would be mostly just dirt.

    I think the part about the special minerals is for his special defense and/or the sand that comes out of the gourd. Every other time should be normal sand that comes out of the ground or found near by like from the desert against deidera

    There isn't much I can do with the first examples, especially since part of the move is the initial hit with the sand and then the constricting by Gaara. However, for the last one, 200 cubic meters of sand would be about 354 tons. Sand varies considerably in density given it's current state, so I used the density I felt was most appropriate.
