completely dry soil 2Solid Unit Weight formula

\(\large{ \gamma_s =  \frac{ W_s }{ V_s }    }\)   

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ \gamma_s } \)  (Greek symbol gamma) = solid unit weight \(\large{ \frac{lbm}{ft^3} }\) \(\large{ \frac{N}{m^3} }\)
\(\large{ V_s} \) = volume of solid soil \(\large{ft^3}\) \(\large{m^3}\)
\(\large{ W_s } \) = weight of soil \(\large{lbf}\) \(\large{N}\)
