Submerged unit weight, abbreviated as Y', is when the soil mass is saturated and its bulk unit weight is called

 

formulas that use Submerged Unit Weight

\(\large{ \gamma_{sub} =  \gamma_{sat} - \gamma_w   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ \gamma_{sub} } \)  (Greek symbol gamma) = submerged unit weight

\(\large{ \gamma_{sat} } \)  (Greek symbol gamma) = saturated unit weight

\(\large{  \gamma_w } \)  (Greek symbol gamma) = unit weight of water
