HOW TO CALCULATE WATER CONTENT FOR 1 M³ M25 CONCRETE

HOW TO CALCULATE WATER CONTENT FOR 1 M³ M25 CONCRETE

We are know below details
  1. Consumption of cement per m³
  2.  Water-cement ratio.
  3. Grade of concrete is M25.

Cement required for 1 m³ of M25 grade concrete is 9.51 bags.( Standard data)
As we know 1 bag of cement contains 50 kg of cement.
∴ 9.51*50 = 476 Kg of cement.
our water cement ratio is 0.5.
Remember the formula :
W/c ratio =Water content /Cement content
Or
Water content= Cement content x W/c ratio
Water content = 476 Kg x 0.5 = 238 Kg.
We know, 1 Kg =1 litre
So water content= 238 Kg. = 238 Litres
Add 5% wastage of water during mixing, handling,
∴ Water content = 5×238/100 + 238 = 250 litres.
