Question: in its natural condition a soil specimen has a volume...

Question details

In its natural condition, a soil specimen has a volume of 433 cm3 and mass of 862 g. The specific gravity of the soil particles is 2.67. If the porosity of the sample is 0.34, use a clear labelled phase diagram to calculate the following ratios:

(i) Bulk density (kg/m3)

(ii) Dry density (kg/m3)

(iii) Water content

(iv) Air content

(v) Degree of saturation
