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.
