1. What are the definitions of porosity and permeability? If the pore volume is 4.6cc and bulk volume is 20cc for a core sample, what is the porosity?
Porosity is the measure of the empty spaces in a material, measured by the fraction of the volume of voids over the total volume. On the other hand, permeability is the measure of the ability of a material to allow fluids to pass through it.
Given the pore volume of 4.6cc and bulk volume of 20cc, the porosity is computed by the formula:
Porosity= pore volume/ bulk volume...
