What is porosity of soil ?

Porosity or void fraction is a measure of the void spaces in a material, and is a fraction of the volume of voids over the total volume, between 0 and 1, or as a percentage between 0% and 100%.

How to Calculate Porosity of soil?

Porosity of soil calculator uses Porosity=(Volume of voids/Volume of soil) to calculate the Porosity, The Porosity of soil formula is defined as a measure of the void spaces in a material, and is a fraction of the volume of voids over the total volume. Porosity and is denoted by η symbol.

How to calculate Porosity of soil using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Porosity of soil, enter Volume of voids (Vv) and Volume of soil (V) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Porosity of soil calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.5 = (10/20).

FAQ

What is Porosity of soil?
The Porosity of soil formula is defined as a measure of the void spaces in a material, and is a fraction of the volume of voids over the total volume and is represented as η=(Vv/V) or Porosity=(Volume of voids/Volume of soil). Volume of voids is the volume occupy by the air and water and Volume of soil consists of volume of solid and voids.
How to calculate Porosity of soil?
The Porosity of soil formula is defined as a measure of the void spaces in a material, and is a fraction of the volume of voids over the total volume is calculated using Porosity=(Volume of voids/Volume of soil). To calculate Porosity of soil, you need Volume of voids (Vv) and Volume of soil (V). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Volume of voids and Volume of soil and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
How many ways are there to calculate Porosity?
In this formula, Porosity uses Volume of voids and Volume of soil. We can use 2 other way(s) to calculate the same, which is/are as follows -
  • Porosity=(Void ratio/(1+Void ratio))
  • Porosity=(Total Volume of Soil or Rock Sample-Volume of Solids)/Total Volume of Soil or Rock Sample
