What is Specific Retention?

Specific Retention is that volume fraction of water that is held back by adhesion and capillary forces, when an aquifer is drained.

How to Calculate Specific Retention?

Specific Retention calculator uses Specific Retention=Volume of Water Retained in Total Volume of Soil/Total Volume of Soil or Rock Sample to calculate the Specific Retention, The Specific Retention is defines how water remains in the rock after it is drained by gravity. It is usually expressed as a percentage. Specific Retention and is denoted by Sr symbol.

How to calculate Specific Retention using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Specific Retention, enter Volume of Water Retained in Total Volume of Soil (Vr) and Total Volume of Soil or Rock Sample (Vt) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Specific Retention calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1.5 = 15/10.
