Part Description

LP15865-6   Specific gravity
Specific gravity (also known as relative density ) is a measure of the density of a material. It is dimensionless, and is equal to the density of the material divided by some reference density (most often the density of water, but sometimes the density of air when working with gases). Since water's density is 1.0 — 103 kg m3 in SI units, the relative density of a material is approximately the density of the material measured in kg m3 divided by 1000 (the density of water). Water's density can also be measured as nearly one gram per cubic centimeter (at maximum density) in metric units. The relative density therefore has nearly the same value as the density of the material expressed in grams per cubic centimeter, but without any units of measurement. Specific gravity is often an ambiguous term and it is often expressed at a given temperature. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
