The image above represents air content of the soil. To calculate air content of the soil, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Volume of the Air (V _{a})Â **andÂ

**Volume of the soil (V).**

The formula for calculating air content of the soil:

A =Â ^{Va}Â /Â _{V}

Where:

A = Air Content of the Soil

V_{a}Â = Volume of the Air

V = Volume of the Soil

Let’s solve an example;

Find the air content of the soil when the volume of the air is 20 and the volume of the soil is 24.

This implies that;

V_{a} = Volume of the Air = 20

V = Volume of the Soil = 24

A =Â ^{Va}Â /Â _{V}

So, A = ^{20}Â /Â _{24}

A = 0.83

Therefore, theÂ **air content of the soil **is **0.83.**

**Calculating the Volume of the Air when the Air Content of the Soil and the Volume of the Soil are Given**

V_{a} = A x V

Where;

V_{a}Â = Volume of the Air

A = Air Content of the Soil

V = Volume of the Soil

Let’s solve an example;

Find the volume of the air when the air content of the soil is 12 and the volume of the soil is 3.

This implies that;

A = Air Content of the Soil = 12

V = Volume of the Soil = 3

That is, V_{a} = A x V

V_{a} = 12 x 3

V_{a} = 36

Therefore, theÂ **volume of the airÂ **isÂ **36.**

**Calculating the Volume of the Soil when the Air Content of the Soil and the Volume of the Air are Given**

V = ^{Va} / _{A}

Where;

V = Volume of the Soil

A = Air Content of the Soil

V_{a} = Volume of the Air

Let’s solve an example;

Find the volume of the soil when the air content of the soil is 5 and the volume of the air is 25.

This implies that;

A = Air Content of the Soil = 5

V_{a} = Volume of the Air = 25

V = ^{Va} / _{A}

That is, V = ^{25} / _{5}

V = 5

Therefore, theÂ **volume of the soilÂ **isÂ **5.**
