Porosity vs. Permeability

Porosity is the amount of space in between soil particles
Permeability is the material ability to allow fluids to pass

How it affects the presence? If Porosity is high, lots of space is between the soil. If it is low, then it is little space between the soil.

If permeability is high then water can travel through soil easily, if low then water can't travel through soil easily.
