Calculate the water content, the wet density and the dry density of the soil


In order to determine the density of a clay soil, an undisturbed sample was taken in a sampling tube whose volume was 1.6 x 10^-3 m^3. The following data were obtained:

Mass of tube(empty) 1.86kg

Mass of tube plus clay sample 5.00kg

Mass of tube plus clay sample after oven drying 4.31kg

If the specific gravity of this soil particles was 2.69, find the void ratio and the degree of saturation of the clay.
