... sacks of Barite and fresh water. The specific gravity of Bentonite and Barite are 2.5 and 4.3 respectively.
(a) Determine the amount of each material to be used (liquid in bbl and solids in lb)?
(b) During the drilling operations, the engineers decided to add 50 sacks of barite and 100 bbl of diesel with specific gravity of 0.75 to the mud. What is the resulting density?
