Find the degree of saturation, S, and the unit weight, γ . Hint: Since no weights or volumes are stated, develop the phase diagram for an assumed volume of 1m3. SOLUTION Step-1: Complete the phase diagram using the given information: n = 41.9%, w.c. = 21.3%, and Gs = 2.71 Vv 1 V s = V − Vv = 1.000 − 0.4...
