Rankine's theory of active earth pressure assumes
soil mass is homogeneous, dry and cohesionless
ground surface is a plane which may be horizontal or inclined
back of the wall is vertical and smooth
wall yields about the base
all the above.

The water content of soil is defined as the ratio of
volume of water to volume of given soil
volume of water to volume of voids in soil
weight of water to weight of air in voids
weight of water to weight of solids of given mass of soil.
