Name of Instructor: -  Aqeel Ahmed Date of submission: -  09 / 09 / 08 Abstract In the previous lab I had performed two experiments. The first experiment was  determining the moisture content of soil. In this experiment I carried out a simple test on  a sample of soil. I basically measured the sample of moist soil, and then heated the soil to  a degree where all the water had evaporated. Thus by knowing the mass of water in the  soil, I could therefore determine the moisture content of the soil sample. In the second experiment, I determined the specific gravity of soil. Through a certain  procedure that will be explained the report, I first calibrated my pycnometer, and then  calculated the mass of the soil sample along with water and the pycnometer. Finally I was  capable of calculating the specific gravity of soil, using the formula for the specific  gravity of soil. 2
