Where:

Y = mass of water needed (gms or lbs)
x = mass of sample (gms or lbs)
i = initial moisture content, expressed as decimal
D = target moisture content, expressed as decimal

3. Add calculated water needed (Y).
4. Mix well. Let stand for 15 minutes. Sample should be free-flowing and not sticky.
