From pycnometer method,

G=(W2-W1) /((W4-W1)-(W3-W4))

Where,
W1 = weight of pycnometer.
W2 = wt of pycno.. + wt of sand.
W3 = wt of (pycno.. +sand +water).
W4 = Wt of (pycno.. +water).

Ys= a unit weight of solids.
Yw=unit weight of water.
specific gravity(G)=Ys/Yw.

Yes, SP gravity. At 27-degreee C.

Sam Kosamkar said:   6 years ago
Sp. Gravity is correct.

G = Ws/(Vs * γw at 27degree).
= γs/ γw.

Ultimate settlement- H*Cc/1 plus initial void ratio*log (total stress/initial stress).

Its answer is specific weight or unit weight.

Specific gravity = weight of soil/weight of water of same volume at 27'c.

VOID RATIO = volume of void/volume of soil solid, According to the question it is SPECIFIC GRAVITY.

sp.gravity = required sample density/standard sample density.

= sample weight/equal weight of water.

Void Ratio = Volume of Voids/ Volume of soil solids.
