2. A sample of medium quartz sand is tested in a constant head permeameter. The same diameter is 60 mm and its length is 130 mm. Under an applied head of 60 cm, 119 cm flows through the sample in 5 min. The Ms of the sample is 410 g. Calculate/answer: a. The Darcy coefficient of permeability, b. The seepage velocity, c. The discharge velocity during the test, and d. Do the results seem reasonable? Why or why not?
