Dry unit weight in terms of water content Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
dry_unit_weight_of_soil = Specific gravity of the soil*Unit weight of water/(1+water content/degree of saturation)
γd = Gs*γw/(1+w/S)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Specific gravity of the soil- Specific gravity of the soil is an important property of soil being related to density.
Unit weight of water - Unit weight of water is the weight of watet per unit volume of a water. (Measured in Kilonewton per Cubic Meter)
water content- Water content is the ratio of the weight of water to the weight of solids present in the soil.
degree of saturation- degree of saturation is the ratio of the volume of water to the volume of voids.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Specific gravity of the soil: 2.65 --> No Conversion Required
Unit weight of water: 9.807 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter --> 0.009807 Newton per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
water content: 1 --> No Conversion Required
degree of saturation: 1 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
γd = Gs*γw/(1+w/S) --> 2.65*0.009807/(1+1/1)
Evaluating ... ...
γd = 0.012994275
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.012994275 Newton per Cubic Meter -->12.994275 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
FINAL ANSWER
12.994275 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter <-- Dry unit weight of soil
(Calculation completed in 00.015 seconds)

What is water content?

Water content or moisture content is the quantity of water contained in a material, such as soil, rock, ceramics, crops, or wood. Water content is used in a wide range of scientific and technical areas, and is expressed as a ratio, which can range from 0 to the value of the materials' porosity at saturation.
