32. 

The ultimate bearing capacity of a soil is 300 kN/m2. The depth of foundation is 1 m and unit weight of soil is 20 kN/m3. Choosing a factor of safety of 2.5, the net safe bearing cacpacity is

[A]. 100 kN/m2
[B]. 112 kN/m2
[C]. 800 kN/m2
[D]. 100.5 kN/m2

Answer: Option D

300-(20*1) = 280.

Net safe BC = 280/2.5 = 112 KN/m2.

Amit Padiyar said: (Nov 26, 2016)  
Net safe BC = (300 - 20 * 1)/2.5 = 112KN/m2.

112 correct.
300-20*1=280.
Net safe BC= 280/2.5=112.5kN/m2.
