# Question e = 0.49 Gs 2.68 4 m Sand Water table 3 m clay e = 0.90 2.75 Gs The soil profile shown consists of dry sand (4-m thick) which overlies a layer of clay (3-m thick). Ground water table is located at the interface of the sand and clay. How many meters must the ground water table rise, from its original position, to decrease the effective stress by 14 kPa, at the bottom of the clay layer? ROUND OFF TO TWO DECIMAL PLACES. USE STORED VALUES.
