Step 1

Given data:

Moist weight of soil (Wwet) = 330 lb

Total volume of Soil (V) = 3.0 ft3

Moisture content of soil or water content of the soil (w) = 27%

Specific gravity of the soil (Gs) = 2.72

Step 2

Calculate bulk unit weight of the soil: Step 3

Calculate the void ratio of the soil: ...
