- density and specific weight - the difference

Weight per US gallon is based on* 7.48 gallons per cubic foot*.

*1 Gallon (U.S.) = 3.785x10*^{-3}m^{3}= 3.785 dm^{3}(liter) = 0.13368 ft^{3}= 4.951x10^{-3}yd^{3}= 0.8327 Imp. gal (UK)

To convert from density in *kg/m ^{3}* to other density units - or between units - use the converting values below:

*1 kg/m*^{3}= 0.001 kg/dm^{3}(kg/l) = 0.000001 kg/cm^{3}= 1 g/l = 0.001 g/ml = 0.0005780 oz/in^{3}= 0.16036 oz/gal (Imperial) = 0.1335 oz/gal (U.S.) = 0.0624 lb/ft^{3}= 0.000036127 lb/in^{3}= 1.6856 lb/yd^{3}= 0.010022 lb/gal (Imperial) = 0.008345 lb/gal (U.S) = 0.0007525 ton/yd^{3}- density converter

### Example - Water Density in unit *lb/ft*^{3}

^{3}

Water density at temperature *20 ^{o}C* is

*998.2 kg/m*(table below). The density in units

^{3}*lb/ft*can with the converting value from above be calculated to

^{3}*(998.2 kg/m ^{3}) 0.0624 = 62.29 lb/ft^{3}*

### Density and Specific Weight of Water - SI Units

Note! - the change in density is not linear with temperature - and the volumetric expansion coefficient for water is not constant over the temperature range.

Temperature - t -(^{o}C) | Density - ρ - (kg/m^{3}) | Specific Weight - γ -(kN/m^{3}) |
---|---|---|

0 | 999.8 | 9.806 |

4 | 1000 | 9.807 |

### Water - Temperature and Specific Volume

### Example - Mass of Hot Water

A tank with volume *10 m*^{3} contains hot water with temperature *90 ^{o}C*. From the table above the density of water at

*90*is

^{o}C*965.3 kg/m*. The total mass of the water in the tank can be calculated

^{3}*(10 m ^{3}) (965.3 kg/m^{3}) *

* = 9653 kg *
