# Apparent Porosity Calculator

An apparent Porosity is defined as the quantity of void (or pores) present in a volume of sediment or porous solid. Generally, the value of porosity is measured as a fraction or percentage. Here is the simple online apparent porosity calculator to calculate the apparent porosity with ease. This tool determines the apparent porosity based on the values of weight of piece soaked, the weight of the dry piece, and weight of the piece soaked and immersed.

#### Formula:

E = [(S - W) / (S - I)] x 100
**Where,**
S = Weight of Piece Soaked
W = Weight of Dry Piece
I = Weight of the Piece Soaked and Immersed
E = Apparent porosity
### Example:

Calculate the apparent porosity based on the weight of piece soaked of 250, weight of dry piece of 30 and weight of the piece soaked and immersed of 20.

#### Solution:

E = [(250 - 30) / (250 - 20)] x 100

= 95.6522
