Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

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
