Total volume of soil, abbreviated as \( V_t \), is the volume of soil plus the total volume of air and water.


Total Volume of Soil formula

\(\large{ V_t =  V_s + V_v  }\)
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ V_t } \) = total volume of soil \(\large{ft^3}\)  \(\large{m^3}\) 
\(\large{ V_s } \) = volume of solid soil \(\large{ft^3}\) \(\large{m^3}\)
\(\large{ V_v }\) = volume of voids (air and water) \(\large{ft^3}\) \(\large{m^3}\)
