## Degree of saturation when bulk unit weight in terms of degree of saturation is given Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
degree_of_saturation = (Bulk unit weight-Dry unit weight of soil)/(Saturated unit weight-Dry unit weight of soil)
S = (γ-γd)/(γsat-γd)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Bulk unit weight - Bulk unit weight is the ratio of total weight to total volume. (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³)
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)
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
Bulk unit weight: 1 Kilogram per Meter³ --> 1 Kilogram per Meter³ No Conversion Required
Dry unit weight of soil: 100 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter --> 0.1 Newton per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
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
S = (γ-γd)/(γsat-γd) --> (1-0.1)/(0.01-0.1)
Evaluating ... ...
S = -10
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
-10 --> No Conversion Required
-10 <-- degree of saturation
