Any soil engineers in here???? Need help on some homework....
Ok, so I'm having a really tough time trying to figure out this problem. I need to figure out the void ration of some soil. I know void ratio=volume of voids/volume of soil, but I don't know either of those things. Here is what they give me though:

Unit Weight=96lb/ft^3
Moisture Content= 17%
Degree of Saturation= 60%

I'm looking through equations in my book, but in each of the ones they give I'm left with 2 unknowns. Is there something really obvious that I'm missing here?
I LOVE MY EVO!!!

I soiled my shorts once after a near mid-air. Does that count?

Oh -- and two months ago I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express, during which all the bath towels somehow became soiled -- but that's neither hair nor dare.

I'm sorry -- what was the question again?
