Volume of water formulas

\(\large{ V_w =  k \; i \; A_c \; t   }\)   
\(\large{ V_w =  k \; A_c \; t \; \frac{ h_l }{ L }    }\)  
\(\large{ V_w =  \frac{ S \; e \; V_t }{ 1 \;+\; e }   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ V_w }\) = volume of water

\(\large{ A_c }\) = area cross-section

\(\large{ S }\) = degree of saturation

\(\large{ t } \) = duration of time for collection of water

\(\large{ h_l }\) = head loss

\(\large{ i } \) = hydraulic gradient

\(\large{ L } \) = length of the sample

\(\large{ k } \) = permeability coefficient

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

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