Abstract:

In a given soil, the percentage of different soil particles upto 75 microns is determined by sieve analysis but the percentage of various soil particles finer than 75 microns is determined by hydrometer analysis. Hence, the hydrometer analysis is useful for knowing the percentage of silt in clay. In this paper, hydrometer analysis of fine sand sample from Morni Hills(Haryana, India) have been performed and the results presented. Morni Hills are an offshoot of Shivalik range, which run in two parallel ranges. The village of Morni (Bhoj Jabial) lies on the mountainside, at 1220 meters or 3600 feet above sea level.
