Submerged unit weight of soil in terms of porosity Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
submerged_unit_weight = Dry unit weight of soil-(1-Porosity)*Unit weight of water
γ' = γd-(1-η)*γw
This formula uses 3 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)
Porosity- Porosity is the ratio of volume of voids to volume of soil.
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)
Porosity: 0.5 --> 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
γ' = γd-(1-η)*γw --> 0.1-(1-0.5)*0.009807
Evaluating ... ...
γ' = 0.0950965
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.0950965 Newton per Cubic Meter --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
0.0950965 Newton per Cubic Meter <-- Submerged unit weight
(Calculation completed in 00.016 seconds)
