# Weight of Soil

## Weight of Soil formulas

\(\large{ W_s = \frac{ W }{ 1 \;+\; w } }\) | |

\(\large{ W_s = \frac{ V_t \; \left( G_s \;+\; S \; e \right) \; \gamma_w }{1 \;+\; e } }\) |

### Where:

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

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

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

\(\large{ W } \) = total weight

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

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

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

\(\large{ w } \) = water content
