Enter the wet density (pcf) and the moisture content (pcf) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Field Density Test.

## Field Density Test Formula

FDT = WD - MC

Variables:

- FDT is the Field Density Test (pcf)
- WD is the wet density (pcf)
- MC is the moisture content (pcf)

To calculate the Field Density Test, subtract the moisture content from the wet density.

## How to Calculate Field Density Test?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Field Density Test.

- First, determine the wet density (pcf).
- Next, determine the moisture content (pcf).
- Next, gather the formula from above = FDT = WD – MC.
- Finally, calculate the Field Density Test.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

wet density (pcf) = 1020

moisture content (pcf) = 102
