dimensional consistency says that in any equation the dimensions of the quantities in the rhs and lhs are same.

for example

force =mass*acceleration

force dimensions are MLT-2 : mass dimension M ;acceleration dimension LT-2 togehter the right hand side is also having MLT-2 dimension same as that of force.

### What is the consistency of soil at liquid limit and Plastic Limit?

zero
Consistency limits and
plasticity
Consistency varies with the water content of the soil. The
consistency of a soil can range from (dry) solid to
semi-solid to plastic to liquid (wet). The
water contents at which the consistency changes from one state to
the next are called consistency limits (or Atterberg
limits).
Two of these are utilised in the classification of fine
soils:
Liquid limit (wL) - change of consistency from plastic to
liquid
Plastic limit (wP) - change of consistency from
brittle/crumbly to plastic
Measures of liquid and plastic limit values can be obtained from
laboratory tests.
