    Depends on the mix and reinforcement.

    2400kg - 2500kg per cubic meter should work for most things.

    2 x 2 what, feet, meters inches? And what is the third dimension?

    You need three dimensions to calculate volume.

    If you go to Wickes you can sort by weight:

    15 kgs(7)
    31 kgs(7)
    32 kgs(7)
    8 kgs(7)
    24 kgs(5)

    Heaviest ones 31 and 32 kg look like they are 600mm by 600mm by 38mm.
    Lighter ones are smaller either by horizontal dimensions or thickness

    I hope so :) 2x2 I assume refers to 2 foot by 2 foot, so 45kg isn't far out. But it's more like 30kg.
