2. A soil core, 10 cm in diameter and 15 cm high, is collected from the saturated zone (below the water table) for a hazardous waste research study in which diesel fuel has spilled and is contaminating the groundwater. The soil core, collected in its natural field condition, weighed 1670 g. The volumetric water content of the soil was calculated to be 22%. What is the moisture content (wet mass basis) of this soil? Assume the density of water is 1 g/cm^3.
