A 27.50 lb soil sample has a volume of 0.220 ft3, a moisture content of 10.2%, and a
specific gravity of solids Gs of 2.65. Determine the moist unit weight, dry unit weight,
degree of saturation, void ratio, and porosity. Use the phase diagram and the basic
Draw and annotate a phase diagram. Determine the dimensions in the phase diagram
using the given information: W = 27.50lb, V = 0.220 ft3, w.c. = 10.2%, and Gs = 2.65
Ws = W
1 + w.c. 1 + 0.102 Ww = W − Ws = 2...
