Submerged density :- Submerged specific gravity is equal to the specific gravity given by the ratio of the weight of the object to the weight of the fluid minus one. That is the object and fluid have the same density when the specific gravity equals one and the submerged specific gravity equals zero. Degree of Shrinkage :- It is defined as decrease in volume of soil expresses as the percentage of original volume when water content of the soil is reduced from its present state to shrinkage limit.
