SAMPLE COMPUTATION

From sieve no. 4

Trial 1:

Wt. of wet soil + container = 47.76 g

Wt. of oven dry soil + container = 46.33 g

Wt. of wet soil = 20 g

Wt. of oven dry soil = 18.57 g

Wt. of container = 27.76 g

Moisture Loss = 20 – 18.57 = 1.43 g
1.43
Water content, w (%) = ×100 = 7.70%
18.57

From sieve no. 10

Trial 1:

Wt. of wet soil + container = 79.87 g

Wt. of oven dry soil + container = 77.15 g

Wt. of wet soil = 50 g

Wt. of oven dry soil = 47.28 g

Wt. of container = 29.87 g

Moisture Loss = 50 – 47.28 = 2.72 g
2.72
Water content, w (%) = ×100 = 5.75%
