    Would anybody be kind enough to help me understand how to approach this question please.

    If the bank density of limestone is 2500 kg/m3, with a bulking factor of 1.7 andthe effect of compaction will reduce the volume by 20%. Calculate the tonnage required to fill a120,000 m3 embankment.

    This would be a great help. Thanks
