partially saturated soil 1Volume of Solid Soil formulas

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

Where:

\(\large{ V_s } \) = volume of solid soil

\(\large{ G_s }\) = specific gravity of soil

\(\large{ V_t } \) = total volume of soil

\(\large{ W_s }\) = weight of soil

\(\large{ Y_w }\) = unit weight of water

\(\large{ e }\) = void ratio

\(\large{ V_v} \) = volume of voids
