Water content when dry unit weight in terms of percentage of air voids is given Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
water_content = ((1-percentage of air voids)*Specific gravity of the soil*Unit weight of water/Dry unit weight of soil)-1/Specific gravity of the soil
w = ((1-na)*Gs*γw/γd)-1/Gs
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
percentage of air voids- Percentage of air voids in the soil is obtained by dividing the volume of air to the total volume.
Specific gravity of the soil- Specific gravity of the soil is an important property of soil being related to density.
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)
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)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
percentage of air voids: 1 --> No Conversion Required
Specific gravity of the soil: 2.65 --> No Conversion Required
Unit weight of water: 9.807 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter --> 0.009807 Newton per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
Dry unit weight of soil: 100 Kilonewton per Cubic Meter --> 0.1 Newton per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
w = ((1-na)*Gs*γw/γd)-1/Gs --> ((1-1)*2.65*0.009807/0.1)-1/2.65
Evaluating ... ...
w = -0.377358490566038
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
-0.377358490566038 --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
-0.377358490566038 <-- water content
