Thank you for using the site. I'll be happy to help you with these problems.
Which time zone is the 7 pm deadline referring to?
For the first two questions, do you have any additional information about Soil A and Soil B?
Also, what textbook is your course using?
Yes, that is correct.
The issue that I am having with the first two is in calculating the porosity. According to my soils book, that would be the volume of voids, divided by the total volume, multiplied by 100%. With the information given, I don't yet see how you can get the volume of voids, unless your course has taught you to assume some certain value if it is not given.
Do you have an example problem from class that might shed some light on the precise approach you are expected to follow?
The remaining three problems shouldn't pose this difficulty as it appears that sufficient information is given to perform the calculations.
Yes, 2.65 g/cm^3 is a common assumed value for the density of solids. I just didn't know if your book allowed that assumption.
Thanks, ***** ***** things up.
Here are the solutions:
Please note that for many of these, there is more than one form of equation that can be used. The answers should come out the same either way, but the calculations may look different from your course material. If that is a problem, please let me know and I will make whatever adjustments I can.
Please also feel free to ask if you have questions about any of these solutions.
Are you using a computer that blocks that site? Many school and work computer systems do that.
I'll try attaching it here. Please let me know if the new link works for you.
