partially saturated soil 1formulas that use Volume of Voids

\(\large{ V_v =  V_t - V_s  }\)   
\(\large{ V_v = n \;  V_t }\) (porosity)
\(\large{ V_v = e \;  V_s }\) (void ratio)

Where:

\(\large{ V_v }\) = volume of voids

\(\large{ n }\) = porosity

\(\large{ V_t } \) = total volume of soil

\(\large{ e }\) = void ratio

\(\large{ V_s } \) = volume of solid soil

\(\large{ w } \) = water content
