# Air - Density at varying pressure and constant temperatures

## Figures and tables showing changes in air density at pressure varying from 1 to 10 000 bara (14.5 - 145000 psi) and constant, selected temperatures. Figures are given in different scales.

Density is the ratio of the mass to the volume of a substance:

ρ = m/V                                          

where
ρ = density, units typically [kg/m3] or [lb/ft3]
m = mass, units typically [kg] or [lb]

V = volume, units typically [m3] or [ft3]

Tabulated values and density units conversion are given below the figures.

See Density and specific weight of as well as Density of crude oil, Density of fuel oils, Density of lubricating oil and Density of jet fuel as function of temperature.

Figures showing air density at ambient pressures (80-105 kPa, 0.8-1.05 bara, 11.6-15.4 psia) and temperatures:

Figures showing air density as function of gauge pressure (0-20 bar, 0-300 psi) at selected temperatures:

Figures showing air density as function of absolute pressure (1-10 000 bar, 14.5 - 150 000 psia) at selected temperatures:

### Examples

The density of air can be calculated as

ρ = 1.325 pin Hg / TR

= 2.7 ppsia / TR

= 2.7 (ppsig + 14.7) / (TF + 459.7)                                                    (1)

where

ρ = density (lb/ft3)

pin Hg = absolute pressure (inches Hg)

TR = absolute temperature (Rankine)

ppsia = absolute pressure (psia)

ppsig = gage pressure (psig)

T= temperature (oF)

### Example - Weight of Air

The density of air at pressure 29.92 inches Hg at 100 degrees F can be calculated as

ρ = 1.325 (29.92 inches Hg) / ((100 oF) + 459.7)

= 0.0708 lb/ft3

The weight of 10 ft3 air can be calculated as

W = (10 ft3) (0.071 lb/ft3)

= 0.708 lb
