Density and Specific Gravity ASTM D, ISO Density and Specific Gravity ASTM D, ISO Scope: Density is the mass per unit volume of a material. Specific gravity is a measure of the ratio of mass of a given volume of material at 23°C to the same volume of deionized water. TE Method of Test For The Determination of Bulk Specific Gravity, Apparent Specific Gravity and Absorption of Coarse Aggregate TF Method of Test For Moisture Content In Soils and Aggregates TD Method of Test For Determination of The Resistance R-Value of Treated and Untreated Bases, Subbases and Basement Soils by The Stabilometer.

Comparison of test methods for determining specific gravity and absorption of aggregate. not statistically different from those measured according to the standard hour soaking method. To reduce the testing time for QA purposes, soaking aggregate samples for 10 min- utes should be considered as an alternative to the standard hour soaking. Specific gravity is the (unit less) ratio of the solid wood density to the density of water at the same temperature. The solid wood density may be determined using the green volume, the ovendry volume, or intermediate volumes. This is notable as wood shrinks about 8%–15% as it dries. The basic specific gravity always uses the green volume. [The density of water at 20°C (68°F) is lb per cubic foot, .

Some presses have been adapted to run high-specific-gravity compounds incorporating up to 90% metal powder for molding fishing-line sinkers and munitions. Flambeau finds the right balance of custom & proprietary molding. Accurate measurement and determination of liquid viscosity data under high pressure conditions requires knowledge of liquid density data. In this study, a high pressure falling sinker-type viscometer was used to determine the viscosity of n-dodecane at elevated pressures up to MPa without supplementary knowledge of liquid density.

The most widely used method is the buoyancy technique which utilizes Archimedes' principle: a body immersed in fluid indicates an apparent loss in weight equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces.

This ancient principle, from around BC, is precisely what is used nowadays to determine density gravimetrically.

Specific gravities, relative to an isotopically defined pure water at 4°C, have been determined on natural sea waters covering the salinity range 9–41% at temperatures of 0–25°C.

A mathematical expression has been computed for the relationship between specific gravity, salinity and temperature. This test method is suitable for determining the bulk specific gravity or bulk density by immersion of the entire item or a representative cross section in water.

This test method involves the weighing of a one piece specimen in water, using a sinker with plastics that are lighter than water. chapter 16 - Specific Gravity Determination - using pycnometer Determination of specific gravity of solids of a soil sample using pycnometer bottle Read Dete.

How to Measure Specific Gravity. The relation of the weight of a substance to its volume should be kept in mind in all cases where both weight and volume are dealt with. Students are apt to imagine that on mixing equal volumes of, say, sulphuric acid and water, an acid of half the strength must be obtained.

If the statement of strength is in parts by weight this will lead to considerable error. Scope* These test methods describe the determination of the specific gravity (relative density) and density of solid plastics in forms such as sheets, rods, tubes, or molded items.
