###### Question details

A sample of clay has a moisture content of w=22.4%. If the specific gravity of the solid particles G s = 2.71, a) What is the correlation of void ratio and the degree of saturation. What is void ratio and dry and wet densities at a degree of saturation of 50%. Also, show the relationship on a graph. b) If this soil has a degree of saturation of 50% and then compressed to a void ratio of 0.55; calculate the volume change in percent.
