Bulk unit weight in terms of degree of saturation Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
bulk_unit_weight = Dry unit weight of soil+(degree of saturation*(Saturated unit weight-Dry unit weight of soil))
γ = γd+(S*(γsat-γd))
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Dry unit weight of soil - The dry unit weight of soil is the weight of soil solids per unit of total volume of soil mass. (Measured in Kilonewton per Cubic Meter)
degree of saturation- degree of saturation is the ratio of the volume of water to the volume of voids.
Saturated unit weight - Saturated unit weight is equal to the bulk density when the total voids is filled up with water. (Measured in Kilonewton per Cubic Meter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Dry unit weight of soil: 100 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter --> 0.1 Newton per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
degree of saturation: 1 --> No Conversion Required
Saturated unit weight: 10 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter --> 0.01 Newton per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
γ = γd+(S*(γsat-γd)) --> 0.1+(1*(0.01-0.1))
Evaluating ... ...
γ = 0.01
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.01 Kilogram per Meter³ --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
0.01 Kilogram per Meter³ <-- Bulk unit weight
