May 23 Daily Question: Water Content of a Clay Soil Sample
NCEES Civil PE Specification VII.B.: Soil properties
A clay sample being tested has a wet density ρ dry of 108 pcf.
Given a Degree of Saturation S = 45% and Void Ratio e = 0.3 , calculate the Water Content w .
Assume the density of water ρ w is 62.4 pcf.
