partially saturated soil 1Weight of Water Formula

\(\large{ w = \frac{ S \; e \; V_t \; \gamma_w }{ 1 \;+\; e }   }\)  

Where:

\(\large{ W_w }\) = weight of water

\(\large{ S }\) = degree of saturation (expressed as %)

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

\(\large{  \gamma_w } \)  (Greek symbol gamma) = unit weight of water

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