Unformatted text preview: + water = 327.12 g
Mass of pycnometer + soil + water = 373.18 g
Volume of pycnometer = 250.00 ml
Compute Gs for this soil.
Draw the phase diagram before and after putting the dry soil using the given information Knowing that the volume of the pycnometer is V = 250.00ml and that the density of
water is ρ w = 1g / ml , then the mass of water in the pycnometer is
M w = V × ρ x = 250.00 g
Mass of pycnometer Mp = Mp+w – Mw = 327.12-250.00 = 77.12g
Mass (g) Volume (ml) 77.12 Pycnometer 250.00 Water 327.12
