## Experiment 1 (Drilling Fluid Mud Density)

Definition: The drilling fluid term refers to the technic used for facilitation of drilling boreholes, and to improve all necessary functions needed for a fine drilling.

## Results:

Results:

(The weight of Mud *0.052)= Gradient of Mud in psi/ft.

(The weight of Mud in lb/ft3)/144=mud gradient in psi/ft.

## Water:

(Mud gradient) 8.3*0.052 =0.432 psi/ft.

(Mud gradient) 64/144 =0.044 psi/ft.

## Mud sample No1:

(Mud gradient) 9.13*0.052=0.475 psi/ft.

(Mud gradient) 69/144=0.480 psi/ft.

## Mud sample 2:

(Mud gradient) 10*.052=0.520 psi/ft.

(Mud gradient) 76/144=0.530 psi/ft.

## Calculation: For calculation of the Density and Mud gradient, the following formulas were used.

Density= (lb/gal)/ 8.345.

Mud gradient= (lb/gal)/ 19.24.

## Volume and mass

Density:

Fresh Water: 8.3/8.345 = 1.0 (S.G)

Mud sample1: 9.13/8.345=1.1 (S.G)

Mud sample 2: 10/8.345=1.20 (
