74) The weight of the soil sample is 190KN. 150KN is the weight of soil mass after the oven drying process, then what will be the weight of water before the oven drying process?
- a) 30 KN
- b) 35 KN
- c) 45 KN
- d) 40 KN
Answer: d) 40 KN
- Weight of given soil sample, W=190KN
- Weight of soil sample after oven drying, =150KN.
When we subtract the soil sample’s dry weight from the soil sample’s given weight, we will get the value of the weight of water.
i.e., Weight of Water, Ww = W- Wd
Ww = 40KN
Therefore, the weight water before the oven drying process is 40KN.
