I'm looking to calculate the total stress at a depth of 10 km in a rock column, where porosity varies with depth.
I believe I can figure this out, however I might have copied down an equation wrong. In the equation for total stress I need to know the density of the sediment, so I have to calculate that first. The equation in question is as follows:
Density of Sediment = Density of water * porosity + density of grain * (1 - porosity) * .052 m3/s
The .0052 m3/s is whats throwing me off, as I end up trying to add the units kg/m3 to kg/s, which can't happen. What I'm thinking is that he might have said "Cubic meters per section" or I'm just way off. Any help would be appreciated
