converting wet weight to dry weight

Postby robert sehn » Wed Sep 19, 2007 12:13 am

Say we have some material with 3 components
water, sand, and oil

If the water content is 1.95%
and the oil content is .17%
and the sand content is 97.9%

how do you convert the oil content to a dry weight measurement

figured it out
just converted it to lbs and it was easy to figure out from there
subtracted the volume 1.95 lbs from 100 lbs and did the % calculation from there
