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 Specific gravity when dry unit weight in terms of water content is given?
Specific gravity when dry unit weight in terms of water content is given calculator uses specific_gravity_of_the_soil = Dry unit weight of soil*(1+water content/degree of saturation)/Unit weight of water to calculate the Specific gravity of the soil, The Specific gravity when dry unit weight in terms of water content is given is the ratio of the density of a substance to the density of a given reference material. Specific gravity of the soil and is denoted by G_{s} symbol.
How to calculate Specific gravity when dry unit weight in terms of water content is given using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Specific gravity when dry unit weight in terms of water content is given, enter Dry unit weight of soil (γ_{d}), water content (w), degree of saturation (S) and Unit weight of water (γ_{w}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Specific gravity when dry unit weight in terms of water content is given calculation can be explained with given input values -> 20.3936 = 0.1*(1+1/1)/0.009807.
