# Total Weight of Soil

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:

Units |
English |
Metric |

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

\(\large{ W_s } \) = weight of soil | \(\large{lbf}\) | \(\large{N}\) |

\(\large{ W_w } \) = weight of water | \(\large{lbf}\) | \(\large{N}\) |
