Question

2. A carbonate rock is given to you for density analysis, as you are an expert in rocks. The rock is composed of the following: 20% of calcite, 9% of

dolomite, 1% of siderite, 40% of quartz, 4%of feldspar, and 6% of kaolinite, and 20% of water saturation. (a) What is its porosity? Answer (porosity in fraction with only two decimals): (b) What is the density of the rock frame (solid part)? Answer (density in g/cc with only two decimals): (c) What is the density of the saturated rock (fully saturated with water)?
