Tanah basah dalam kondisi lapangan seberat 1870 gr, dipadatkan kedalam satu cetakan (mold) yang

mempunyai volume 1000 cm³. Tanah tersebut dimasukkan kedalam oven dan dikeringkan sampai mencapai
berat konstan 1677 gr dan berat jenis dianggap 2.66.
Ditanyakan : Hitung berapa :
- Kadar air
- Berat isi kering
- Porositas
Diketahui :

Ws
Vs
Wd
Gs
gw

- Derajat kejenuhan
- Berat isi jenuh

= 1870 gr
= 1.87 kg = 18.3447 N
= 1000 cm³ = 0.001 m³
= 1677 gr
= 1.677 kg = 16.4514 N
= 2.66
= 9.81 x 10³ kg/m³

Penyelesaian :
1. Kadar air
