SUBMERGED MASS DENSITY OF SOIL:
It is define as “ The submerged mass of soil per unit volume is called submerged density of soil”
It usually occur when our soil sample present below the water, so that’s why we called it submerged density .
Submerged density = Submerged mass/Volume.
DEGREE OF SHRINKAGE:
It can define as “ Decrease in volume of soil which is expresses as the percentage of actual volume when water content of the soil is reduced from it,s present stage to the shrinkage limit.
Degree of Shrinkage basically tells us about the plasticity of soil.
