γdry = {( γbulk)/(1+ω)}

ω = % of water content

Sample Number 1 2 3 4 5 6
γbulk kg/litre 1.8 1.94 2.0 2.005 2.003 1.98
% water content 8.5 12.2 13.75 15.5 18.2 20.2
γ dry 1.659 1.729 1.758 1.736 1.695 1.647

Maximum theoretical γdry = (G .γω)/(1+ ωG) (ω = 15.5%)

= (2.7 X 9.81)/(1+(0.155)X (2.7))

= 1/0.05355

= 18.6725 k N/m2
