I'm not a doctor, but I can provide some general information about water fasting.

The amount of weight you may lose during a 3-day water fast can vary depending on several factors, such as your starting weight, body composition, metabolism, and overall health.

During a water fast, your body primarily relies on stored glycogen (carbohydrate reserves) for energy. Glycogen is stored in your muscles and liver, and it requires water to be stored. As you deplete glycogen stores, your body also loses the associated water weight.

Additionally, your body may start breaking down stored fat for energy after the glycogen reserves are depleted. The initial weight loss during a water fast is primarily attributed to water weight. It's important to note that this weight loss is temporary and can be regained once you resume eating and replenish your glycogen stores. It's difficult to predict an exact amount of weight loss because it varies from person to person.

Some individuals may experience more significant weight loss during a short water fast, while others may experience less. It's also important to remember that weight loss should not be the sole focus when considering fasting, as there are potential risks and it may not be suitable for everyone.

If you're considering a water fast or any type of fasting, it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional who can evaluate your specific circumstances and provide guidance tailored to your needs.

1. Prove the following relationships

(a) S

(b)

Gy (110)

(c) y=

2. A sample of saturated clay was placed in a container and weighed. The weight was 6 N. The clay in its container was placed for 24 hours at 105°C. The weight reduced to a constant value of 5 N. The weight of the container is 1 N. If G, 2.7, determine a) the water content, b) void ratio, c) bulk unit weight, d) dry density, and e) effective unit weight.

3. An embankment for a highway is to be constructed from a soil compacted to a dry unit weight of 18 kN/m. The clay has to be trucked to the site from a borrow pit. The bulk unit weight of the soil in the borrow pit is 17 kN/m and its natural water content is 5%. Calenlate the volume of clay from the borrow pit required for I cubic meter of embankment. Avume G-27

4. If the borrow soil in question 3 were to be compacted to attain dry unit weight of 18 kN/m² at a water content of 7%, determine the amount of water required per cubic meter of embankment, assuming no loss of water during transportation.

5. A sample of dry coarse-grained material of mass 500 grams was shaken through a nest of sieves and the following results were obtained

Sieve no.
