Question 5: In Figure 4, let \( h=6.0 \mathrm{~m}, L_{1}=5.6 \mathrm{~m}, L_{2}=4 \mathrm{~m}, \quad B=5.6 \mathrm{~m} \), and \( L_{3}=\infty \). Determine the factor of safety against piping. Figure 4 The bottom of a cut in sand

To determine the factor of safety against piping, we need to calculate the critical depth of the soil, which is the depth at which t
