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.
How to Calculate Dry unit weight in terms of water content?
Dry unit weight in terms of water content calculator uses dry_unit_weight_of_soil = Specific gravity of the soil*Unit weight of water/(1+water content/degree of saturation) to calculate the Dry unit weight of soil, The Dry unit weight in terms of water content is the unit weight of a soil when all void spaces of the soil are completely filled with air, with no water. Dry unit weight of soil and is denoted by γ_{d} symbol.
How to calculate Dry unit weight in terms of water content using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Dry unit weight in terms of water content, enter Specific gravity of the soil (G_{s}), Unit weight of water (γ_{w}), water content (w) and degree of saturation (S) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Dry unit weight in terms of water content calculation can be explained with given input values -> 12.99428 = 2.65*0.009807/(1+1/1).
