Question Description

I will upload the data from our lab and the Lab report Guideline also the lab paper show the steps for the lab itself .

this is the requirement Dr. wants

1. For your lab report and analysis, use group B and C's data and ignore group A's data.

2. Calculate Rg. If Rg < 1.2. report average Gs. If Rg is greater than 1.2, don't take the average instead discuss what the discrepancies among the reading values is caused.

3. Submit one combined lab report including both labs (Moisture contents and Specific Gravity of soil).

For group B and C members, contact me ASAP to take your WC measurements.

Please refer to the lab report guidelines on Blackboard for writing your reports. Keep in mind that the report must be submitted via Blackboard by the beginning of the next lab period.

Specific Gravity Lab Report



The purpose of carrying out the experiment was to determine specific gravity and water
content of solid soils. Generally, specific gravity refers to the ratio of density of soil solids to the
density of same volume of the reference material. In most experiments, water is used as the
reference material. Different soils types have varying levels of specific gravity. Specific gravity of
soil solids is usually expressed as Gs. Water content refers to the amount of moisture in the soil
solids. A high moisture content is an indication that the soil sample has poor load bearing
properties. The table below presents different values of specific gravity for different types of soils.
Table 1: Values of Specific Gravity for different types of soils

Table 2: Moisture Content values for different soils



Water content is always expressed as (%) whereas specific gravity has no units since it’s a
ration of two density values. Specific gravity test helps in determining how heavy or light a soil
sample is compared to water. Specific gravity is an important t...
