What is meant by the statement that a block of wood has a specific gravity of 0.6?
With a specific gravity of 1.150, the electrolyte freezes at about 5° above zero.
If it is not between these limits, the specific gravity should be adjusted to these values at the end of the charge.
A brief discussion of specific gravity might be helpful at this point.
The specific gravity of an infusion of chicory is also much higher than that of coffee.
The specific gravity is a better guide than the lamps or voltage.
Oil of cloves is readily soluble in alcohol and ether, and has a specific gravity of about 1.055.
An instrument for measuring the specific gravity of the electrolyte.
Air has but 1⁄770 the specific gravity of water, so that a balloon must be enormous to have any carrying capacity worth while.
The liquid should have a specific gravity of 5° on the acid hydrometer.
specific gravity n.
Abbr. sg, sp gr
The ratio of the mass of a solid or liquid to the mass of an equal volume of distilled water at 4°C (39°F) or of a gas to an equal volume of air or hydrogen under prescribed conditions of temperature and pressure.
