## Specific gravity when dry unit weight in terms of water content is given Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
specific_gravity_of_the_soil = Dry unit weight of soil*(1+water content/degree of saturation)/Unit weight of water
Gs = γd*(1+w/S)/γw
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Dry unit weight of soil - The dry unit weight of soil is the weight of soil solids per unit of total volume of soil mass. (Measured in Kilonewton per Cubic Meter)
water content- Water content is the ratio of the weight of water to the weight of solids present in the soil.
degree of saturation- degree of saturation is the ratio of the volume of water to the volume of voids.
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
Dry unit weight of soil: 100 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter --> 0.1 Newton per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
water content: 1 --> No Conversion Required
degree of saturation: 1 --> 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
Gs = γd*(1+w/S)/γw --> 0.1*(1+1/1)/0.009807
Evaluating ... ...
Gs = 20.393596410727
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
20.393596410727 --> No Conversion Required
20.393596410727 <-- Specific gravity of the soil
