partially saturated soil 1Formulas that use Specific Gravity of soil and rock

\(\large{ SG = \frac{ W_s }{ V_s } \; \gamma_w  }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ SG }\) = specific gravity of soil and rock

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

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

\(\large{ W_s } \) = weight of soil
