What is the percentage of sand silt and clay in a sample of soil?
depends on the kind of soil, each kind would have different composition, in fact the kind is defined by the percentage of sand,silt and clay it has.

This is called the soil 'texture." There are sandy soils, clay soils, and well-balanced soil (with a mix of sand, clay/silt particles and organic material like compost) is usu…ally referred to as "loam."
its called clay loam. A true loam is approximately 40% each of sand and silt and 20% clay. This mineral mixture should be 92% of your soil and 8% organic material for your bes…t growing mixture.
This type of soil is called loam, although it does not necessarily have exactly equal amounts, but more correctly has optimal amounts of each component. It is generally consi…dered the best, or at least the most versatile, soil for planting.
