# Solid Unit Weight

## Solid 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 | \(\large{lbf}\) | \(\large{N}\) |
