Porosity and Permeability Lab

In this porosity and permeability learning exercise, students experiment with different types of soils such as sand, gravel, pebbled and rocks. They put each soil type in a beaker and pour water in being sure to measure the amount of water they add until the water has saturated the soil. They calculate the porosity of the soil and answer questions about their results.
