1) The following results were obtained from a shear box test carried out on a set of soil samples. The apparatus made use of a proving ring to measure the shear forces. The cross-sectional area of the box was \( 3600 \mathrm{~mm}^{2} \) and one division of the proving ring dial gauge equalled \( 0.01 \mathrm{~mm} \). The calibration of the proving ring was \( 0.01 \mathrm{~mm} \) deflection equalled \( 8.4 \mathrm{~N} \). Determine the strength parameters of the soil.
