Saturated unit weight of soil is the ratio of:

### Right Answer is: Bulk unit weight of a soil when it is fully saturated

#### SOLUTION

Saturated unit weight: Saturated unit weight, abbreviated as γsat, is the total weight of soil per volume of soil

or

The saturated unit weight of soil mass is the ratio of the weight of fully saturated soil mass, Wsat, to the total volume of soil mass, V.

${\gamma _{sat}} = \frac{{{W_{sat}}}}{V}$

γsat = Saturated unit weight

γb = Bulk unit weight

W = bulk weight

V = Volume

When soil is fully sutured means all voids rave now filled with water.

So, W = Wsaturated
