Difference between Specific gravity and Specific Volume

Difference between Specific gravity and Specific Volume:The detailed explanation of Specific gravity and Specific Volume was explained in this article along with formulas and units.

Specific gravity and Specific Volume:

Specific Volume:

It is the reciprocal of Density which is defined as the ratio of Volume of the body to its unit mass.It is denoted by (ν)

  • Specific Volume(ν)= Volume of the body/unit mass.
  • Units                   =  m3/Kg

Relative density or Specific Gravity:

It is defined as the ratio of Density of any substance to the Density of water.

Specific Gravity = (Density of any substance/Density of Water).

Units                     = No Units
