It is beyond the scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering data. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and asym practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

ASTM D – 01 Standard Test Method for pH of Soils

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The astmm of the result produced by this standard is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. Measurements in both liquids are necessary to fully define the soil’s pH. A few such discussions are given as Refs at the end of the text.

This measurement determines the degree of acidity or alkalinity in soil materials suspended in water and a 0. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Measurements on soils or soil fractions having particle sizes larger than 2.

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. When no method is specified, Method A shall be used. This method can be used for any application, however, because paper typically has a lower resolution, it s4972 an approximate estimate of the pH of the soil and should not be used when the application requires a higher level of resolution Note 1.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Users of this standard are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself assure reliable results.

In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

This variable is useful in determining the solubility of soil minerals and the mobility f4972 ions in the soil and assessing the viability of the soil-plant environment.

The method to be used shall be specified by the requesting authority. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

The low ionic strength counters the dilution effect on the r4972 equilibrium by setting the salt concentration of the solution closer to that expected in the soil solution.

If soil or soil fractions with particles larger than 2. The pH is determined in test water and a calcium chloride solution for both methods. A more detailed discussion of the usefulness of this parameter is given in Refs 1- 6 2.

Such measurements are used in the agricultural, environmental, geotechnical, and natural resources fields. This method can be used for any application and must be used when the application warrants a higher level of resolution.

This variable is useful in determining the solubility of soil minerals and the mobility of ions in the soil and assessing the viability of the soil-plant environment. Measurements in both liquids are necessary to fully define the soil’s pH. Therefore, both measurements are needed to fully define the character of the soil’s pH.

Active view current version of standard. The pH values obtained in the solution of calcium chloride are slightly lower than those measured in water due to the release of more aluminum ions which then hydrolyses. Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors.

A more detailed discussion of the usefulness of this parameter is not warranted here; however, it can be found in many discussions of the subject. Referenced Documents purchase separately Asttm documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. This measurement determines the degree of acidity or alkalinity in soil materials satm in water and a 0.
