Accurate determination of water content, is made by
Answer: Option D
No answer description available for this question.

|Weight of moisture soil > weight oven drying soil,
So, water content = weight of moisture soil- weight oven drying soil.
|Mohammed Zahoor said: (Apr 26, 2014)|
|Weight of Water = Weight of moisture soil - Weight oven drying soil.
Whereas, Water Content = Weight of Water / Weight of Solids.

|Calcium carbide method is quick and accurate than oven drying method.|
|Vijaykumar said: (Apr 28, 2019)|
|W = weight of water/ weight of solids.
Weight is calculated when water is present and water is absent.

|Yes, calcium carbide should be the answer as it is the most accurate method.|
|Umesh said: (Aug 19, 2019)|
|Calcium carbide is a quick method but not most accurate than oven drying.
So, Accurate method for determination of water content is oven drying method.
|Prashanth said: (Oct 26, 2019)|
|Torsion balance method is also most accurate method for soils but not given in option.|
|Prashant Shreshtha said: (Jan 19, 2020)|
|Calcium Carbide is more accurate as during Oven Drying organic matter can be vaporised from the soil.|
|Opise said: (Jun 22, 2020)|
|Calcium Carbide usually known as RMM( Rapid Moisture Meter test ) is a field test method.
Oven drying method is a lab method test with proper temp. control. So due to temperature control so the test result is most accurate 24 hr. 105 - 110 degree celsius.
