Name: Dondray WhitingDate: ________________________Student Exploration: Permeability & PorosityGizmo Warm-upSome rocks and sedimentshave a lot of empty space in them. This allows liquids such as water and oil to pass throughand be stored in them. Permeabilitydescribes how easily liquid passes through a material, while porositydescribes how much liquid can be stored in the material. These properties are explored in the Porosity Gizmo.Turn on the Macroscopic view of Gravel, Sand, and SiltGravelconsists mostly of rock fragments greater than 2.0 mm in diameter. Sandconsists of grains that are between 0.0625 and 2.0 mm in diameter. Siltconsists of grains that are between 0.0039 and 0.0625 mm in diameter.1.Which sediment do you think will allow water to pass throughmost easily? .
2.Which sediment do you think could hold the most water?
