1. For slopes of limited extent the surface of slippage, is usually along
2. Plasticity index is defined as the range of water content between
3. If the coefficient of the active pressure Ka is 1/3, the coefficient of passive pressure Kp, is
4. If drainage is permitted throughout the test, during the application of both normal, and shear stresses so that full consolidation occurs and no excess pore pressure is set up at any stage of the test, is known as
5. Pick up the incorrect definition from the following:
6. Stoke's law does not hold good if the size of particle is smaller than
7. The ratio of the volume of water present in a given soil mass to the total volume of its voids, is known
8. According to IS : 2720 - 1965, the composition of a dispersing solution used in pipette analysis for determining the size of particles, is
9. In a fow net
10. Cohesive soils are generally
11. For a base failure of a slope, depth factor
12. When the seepage pressure becomes equal to the pressure due to submerged weight of a soil, the effective pressure is reduced to zero and the soil particles have a tendency to move up in the direction of flow. This phenomenon is generally known
13. In a purely cohesive soil, the critical centre lies at the intersection of
14. The ratio of the undrained strength in the undrained state to the undrained strength, at the same water content, in the remoulded state, is called the sensivity of the clay. Its value for quick clays is
15. The method of the slices is applicable to
16. Compression of soil occurs rapidly if voids are filled with
17. The angle of internal friction, is least for
18. The total weight of a pycnometer with water and oven dried soil 20 (g) is 1600 g. The pycnometer filled with water alone weighs 1500 g. The specific gravity of the soil, is
19. In non-cohesive soil in passive state of plastic equilibrium
20. The shearing strength of a cohesion-less soil depends upon
21. A soil mass coated with a thin layer of paraffin weighs 460 g. When immersed, it displaces 299 cc of water. The weight of paraffin is 10 g. If specific gravity of solids is 2.5 and that of paraffin 0.9, the void ratio of soil, is
