Geotechnical Engineering Please answer all questions

  1. Explain why the mass of soil required for determining water content increases as the maximum particle size increases. 
  2. If the person before you left a trace of 5.2 g on the scale and you forgot to re-zero it (before determining the mass of your dry soil + can), what would be the "new" water content of both of your samples? What would be the percent error in your calculations? Do you consider this to be significant?
  3. Suppose you forgot to include the lid when taking the mass of the wet soil + can (Mwet). If the lid has a mass of 13.42 g, how would this impact your water content calculations?
