|About 15g of dried soil passing through IS 425 micron is taken for plastic limit determination and is mixed with a sufficient amount of water which would enable to soil mass become plastic enough to be easily shape into a ball. When a diameter of 3 mm is reached, the soil is remolded into a ball.
The process of making the threat and remolded continuous till the threat at a dia. Of 3 mm, just start crumbling.

|As soon as water added to soil sample and thorough mixing the powdered form of soil mixes with water and forms a tight mass and remains as a plastic form. The limit of changing of plastic mass is known as plastic limit. It's completely known through practical doing instead of reading through books.|

|It is the definition of plastic limit.|
|Mayank said: (Dec 13, 2016)|
|It is shrinkage limit.|
|Ravi Kumar said: (Apr 7, 2017)|
|Please give me the correct definition of Plastic limit.|
|Indhu said: (Apr 29, 2017)|
|It is the limit at which soil stops behaving as a plastic material. It can be determined by plastic limit test or thread test.|
|Jagriti said: (Jun 16, 2017)|
|At the beginning of crumbling it's plastic limit but after that it's shrinkage limit.|
|Pranjal said: (Aug 20, 2017)|
|Shubham said: (Dec 6, 2017)|
|Plastic or shrinkage limit.|
|Arya Ashokan said: (Dec 9, 2017)|
|It's shrinkage limit.|
|Ankit said: (Feb 16, 2018)|
|It's plastic limit.|
|Riya Mama said: (Apr 14, 2018)|
|It's the plastic limit.|
|Kasthuri said: (Jul 20, 2018)|
|It's plastic limit, the water content at which the soil begins to crumble when we form 3mm thread.|
|R.G said: (Jan 19, 2019)|
|Shrinkage limit is correct.|
|Vijay K. said: (Jan 26, 2019)|
|It's a plastic limit. I agree with the given answer.|
|Je Pankaj said: (Jan 27, 2019)|
|I think shrinkage limit is correct.|
|Nancy said: (Apr 12, 2019)|
|Plastic limit is the correct answer. I agree.|
|Kehomong Lim said: (May 5, 2019)|
|Plastic limit is correct.|
|Prakash said: (Jun 12, 2019)|
|The minimum Water content at which the soil can be rolled into a thread of 3 mm in diameter without crumbling.|
|Umair said: (Jul 17, 2019)|
|You are right @Prakas.
So, it is a shrinkage limit.
|Dhan Bahadur K.C. said: (Apr 19, 2020)|
|I think, it is a shrinkage limit.|
|Mesbah said: (Apr 23, 2020)|
|The plastic limit is correct because when we perform this test we take the moisture content where the sample is crumbled at 3mm.|
|Niva said: (Nov 3, 2020)|
|Liquid limit - soil contain water with small shear strength.
Plastic limit -soil contain water in which the soil crumble into 3mm diameter.
Shrinkage limit-soil contains water 100%. It is fully saturated soil. From shrinkage limit the water content decrease.

|Plastic limit [Wp].
The minimum water content at which the soil can be rolled into a thread of 3mm in diameter without crumbling. It's called THREAD TEST.
