## QUIZ NO. 4 - EARTHWORKS, AREAS AND VOLUMES

1. The center height of the road at station 7+480 is 2m fill while at station 7+530 is 1.20m cut.
From station 7+480 to 7+530, the ground makes a uniform slope of +4.80%.
a. Determine the slope of the new road.
b. How far from station 7+480 will the fill extend?
c. Determine the stationing of the point where the fill is extended?

2. A 75 m by 75 m lot is to be divided into 9 equal square sections. The elevations of the ground
surface at each corner of the square section are as follows:

## A = 19.60 m E = 20.70 m I = 22.90 m M = 18.80 m

B = 17.30 m F = 21.50 m J = 24.20 m N = 25.20 m
C = 22.10 m G = 16.50 m K = 23.60 m O = 16.40 m
D = 25.00 m H = 19.40 m L = 19.70 m P = 13.00 m
Find the volume to be excavated if the ground surface is to be leveled to elevation 5 m.

3. Topographic survey conducted by SALCON shows that the centerline of the proposed road
cross section crosses a small valley between station 10+022 (elevation 123.00 m) and station
10+060 (elevation 122.50 m). The stationing at the bottom of the valley is 10+037 (elevation
111.20 m). The grade line of the proposed road passes the ground points at the edges of the
valley (station 10+022) and (10+060) and the section at of these stations are level sections.
Width of road base is 10 m and sideslope of 2:!. Assume that the sides of the valley slope
directly to the lowest point from the edges.
a. Find the cross-sectional area of fill at station 10+037.
b. Compute the volume of fill from station (10+022) to (10+037).
c. Compute the volume of fill from station (10+037)+(10+060).

4. The center height of the road at Sta 5+320 is 4.25 m cut. At Sta 5+420 it is 1.80 m fill. The
ground slopes uniformly at -5% from Sta 5+320 to Sta 5+420. How far from Sta 5+320
towards Sta 5+420 will the excavation extend?

5. The cross-section notes of the ground surface at a given station of a road survey shows that
the ground s sloping at an 8% grade upward to the right. The difference in elevation between
the ground surface and the finished subgrade at the centerline of the proposed road is 2.50 m.
The width of the subgrade is 7 m with side slope of 2H to 1V.
a. Find the distance of the right slope stake from the center of the road.
b. Find the distance of the left slope stake from the center of the road.
c. Find the area of the cross
section.
