partially saturated soil 1Volume of Solid Soil formulas

\(\large{ V_s =  \frac{W_s}{G_s\;Y_w}  }\)   
\(\large{ V_s = \frac { V_t} { 1 \;+\; e}   }\)  

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ V_s } \) = volume of solid soil \(\large{ft^3}\) \(\large{m^3}\)
\(\large{ G_s }\) = specific gravity of soil \(\large{dimensionless}\)
\(\large{ V_t } \) = total volume of soil \(\large{ft^3}\) \(\large{m^3}\)
\(\large{ W_s }\) = weight of soil \(\large{lbf}\) \(\large{N}\)
\(\large{ Y_w }\) = unit weight of water \(\large{lbf}\) \(\large{N}\)
\(\large{ e }\) = void ratio  \(\large{dimensionless}\)
