This is an equation for porosity, n, derived from the void ratio, e.

The void ratio, e, is defined as e = V_V / V_S, where V_V is the volume occupied by voids and V_S is the volume occupied by soil solids

The porosity, n then is defined: n = V_V / V, where V is the total volume including both solids and voids

n = e / (1+e)
