# Specific Gravity Calculator

Specific Gravity Calculator is a free online tool to calculate the density within a few seconds. Simply, you can give inputs in the input field and click on calculate to get the output.

### Specific Gravity - Definition

Specific gravity is nothing but relative density which measures the density of the object with respect to pure water density. Here, the reference object used is water which has a density of water is 1000 Kg/m^{3}.

**Specific Gravity = density of substance/density of water**

### How to Calculate Specific Gravity?

We are providing you with a specific procedure to calculate specific gravity using a specific gravity calculator.

- Enter the values for density of substance and density of water.
- Then click on calculate.
- You will get value for specific gravity.

### Specific Gravity Formula

**SG = ρ _{substance}/ρ_{water}**,

Whereas,

SG is the Specific Gravity

ρ_{substance} is the density of the object

ρ_{water} is the density of water

### Example to Calculate Specific Gravity?

**Question : Find the Specific Gravity for 8kg/m ^{3}?**

**Solution:**

Given Parameters,

Density of object = 8kg/m^{3}

We know that, Density of water = 997 kg/m^{3}.

Formula,

SG = ρ_{substance}/ρ_{water} = 8/1000 = 0.8

Value of SG = 0.8 kg/m^{3}.
