(i) Place a soil sample on the aluminium dish
(ii) Apply heat to dry the sample soil
(iii) Weigh the the soil sample after drying
(iv) Weigh the aluminium dish to determine the weight of the soil sample

(i) Retort stand
(ii) Bunsen burner
(iii) Aluminium dish

Mass of empty dish = 29g
Mass of dish + fresh soil = 42g

% moisture content of soil = Mass of water/Mass of fuel soil × 100/1
Mass of fresh soil = 42 – 29 = 13g
Mass of water = 39 – 29 = 10g
= 10/13 × 100/1 = 76.92%
