81) How can we define relative compaction (i.e., Rc) from the following listed formulae?
- a) γd(max.) / γd
- b) γd / γd(min.)
- c) γd / γd(max.)
- d) γd(min.) / γd

Answer: c) γd / γd(max.)
The ratio of soil’s dry density to its dry density corresponding to the most compact state is called relative compaction.
Rc = γd / γd(max.)
Rc = Relative compaction
γd = Dry density of soil
γd(max.) = Dry density of soil corresponding to the most compact state of it.
