# Hydrogen - Density and Specific Weight vs. Temperature and Pressure

## Online calculator, figures and tables showing density and specific weight of hydrogen, H2, at temperatures ranging from -260 to 325 °C (-435 to 620 °F) at atmospheric and higher pressure - Imperial and SI Units.

Density, ρ, has units typically [kg/m3] or [lb/ft3], and is defined by the ratio of the mass to the volume of a substance:

ρ = m/V                      [1]

where     m = mass, units typically [kg] or [lb]
V = volume, units typically [m3] or [ft3]

Specific weight, γ, has units typically [N/m3] or [lbf/ft3]  is defined by the ratio of the weight to the volume of a substance:

γ = (m * g)/V = ρ * g                [2]

where    g = acceleration due to gravity, units typically [m/s2] and value on Earth usually given as 9.80665 [m/s2] or 32.17405 [ft/s2]

Tabulated values of hydrogen density at given temperature and pressure (SI and Imperial units) as well as density units conversion are given below the figures.

### Online Hydrogen Density Calculator

The calculator below can be used to estimate the density and specific weight of gaseous hydrogen at given temperature and atmospheric pressure (1 bara/14.5psia).
The output density is given as kg/m3, lb/ft3, lb/gal(US liq) and sl/ft3.  Specific weight is given as N/m3 and lbf/ ft3.

Temperature

Choose the actual unit of temperature: °C  °F  °R

For calculation of density at higher pressure (up to 100 bara / 1450 psia), a good approximation is to multiply the density at 1 bara with the actual, higher pressure (in bara). If pressure is given in psia, you have to multiply the density at 14.5 psia with the actual higher pressure (in psia) and divide by 14.5.

Note! For pressure  between 20 and 100 bara, the error may be up to 7% by using this approximation (higher error, the higher pressure).

Example 1: Density of hydrogen at 5 bara and 24 °C.
Calculator gives the density at 24 °C and 1 bara: 0.0815 [kg/m3]
Density at 24°C and 5 bara: 0.0815 [kg/m3]* 5[bara]/1[bara] = 0.408 [kg/m3]

Example 2: Density of hydrogen at 725 psia and 125 °F.
Calculator gives the density at 125 °F and 14.5 psia: 0.00465 [lbm/ft3]
Density at 125°F and 725 psia: 0.00465 [lbm/ft3]* 725[psia]/14.5[psia] = 0.233 [lbm/ft3]
(this is 3% more than the below tabulated value of density at 125°F and 725 psia.)
