## Specific gravity when dry density in terms of void ratio is given Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
specific_gravity_of_the_soil = Dry density*(1+void ratio)/Water Density
Gs = ρd*(1+e)/WD
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Dry density - Dry density is the ratio of mass of dry soil to its volume. (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³)
void ratio- Void ratio is the ratio of the volume of voids to the volume of solids.
Water Density - Water Density is mass per unit of water (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Dry density: 10 Kilogram per Meter³ --> 10 Kilogram per Meter³ No Conversion Required
void ratio: 1 --> No Conversion Required
Water Density: 1 Kilogram per Meter³ --> 1 Kilogram per Meter³ No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Gs = ρd*(1+e)/WD --> 10*(1+1)/1
Evaluating ... ...
Gs = 20
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
20 --> No Conversion Required
20 <-- Specific gravity of the soil
