Total weight of soil, abbreviated as \( W_t \), is the total weight of soil plus the total weight of water.

 

Total Weight of Soil formula

\(\large{ W_t =  W_s + W_w    }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ W_t }\) = total weight of soil

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

\(\large{ W_w } \) = weight of water
