# Pentane - Density and Specific Weight

## Online calculator, figures and table showing density and specific weight of pentane, C5H12, at temperatures ranging from -130 to 325 °C (-200 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                      

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                

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 pentane density and specific weight at given temperature and pressure (SI and Imperial units) as well as density units conversion are given below the figures.

### Online Pentane Density Calculator

The calculator below can be used to estimate the density and specific weight of liquid pentane at given temperature.
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.
