Porosity when submerged unit weight of soil in terms of porosity is given Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
porosity_ = 1-((unit weight of soil-Submerged unit weight)/Unit weight of water)
η = 1-((γ-γ')/γw)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
unit weight of soil - unit weight of soil is the weight of soil used per unit i.e total weight of the soil divided by total volume. (Measured in Newton per Cubic Meter)
Submerged unit weight - Submerged unit weight is the unit weighy of a weight of soil as observed under water in a saturated condition of course. (Measured in Newton per Cubic Meter)
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)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
unit weight of soil: 1 Newton per Cubic Meter --> 1 Newton per Cubic Meter No Conversion Required
Submerged unit weight: 5 Newton per Cubic Meter --> 5 Newton per Cubic Meter No Conversion Required
Unit weight of water: 9.807 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter --> 0.009807 Newton per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
η = 1-((γ-γ')/γw) --> 1-((1-5)/0.009807)
Evaluating ... ...
η = 408.871928214541
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
408.871928214541 --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
408.871928214541 <-- Porosity

Porosity when submerged unit weight of soil in terms of porosity is given Formula

porosity_ = 1-((unit weight of soil-Submerged unit weight)/Unit weight of water)
η = 1-((γ-γ')/γw)

What is submerged unit weight ?

The weight of the solids in air minus the weight of water displaced by the solids per unit of volume of soil mass; the saturated unit weight minus the unit weight of water.

How to Calculate Porosity when submerged unit weight of soil in terms of porosity is given?
