Lab 6: Bulk Density, Porosity, and Particle Density Relationships

These Videos will help you with the content of Lab 6, as well as for the exam

Calculating Bulk Density 

Calculating Porosity– This is how to calculate porosity when you know bulk density and particle density.

Actual Calculation of Porosity – If you collect your own core samples, this is the way that porosity is calculated based on a saturated and oven dry sample. From this data, we can derive the particle and bulk density as well.
