### Difference Between Specific Gravity and Specific Weight

// Feb 9th, 2012
Specific Gravity vs Specific Weight   Specific gravity and specific weight are two quantities widely used. These two concepts are widely used in fields such as mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, aerodynamics and various other fields. It is vital to have a proper understanding in these concepts in...

### Difference Between Density and Bulk Density

// Jul 30th, 2011
Density vs Bulk Density Density and bulk density are properties of matter, which are very important when it comes to the study of properties of matter. These are defined for substances such as air, gas or solids, in many forms. Density and bulk density are widely used attributes when it comes to fields such as...

### Difference Between Relative Density and Specific Gravity

// Jul 29th, 2011
Relative Density vs Specific Gravity Relative density and specific gravity are two concepts used in comparing densities of solids, liquids and gas. Both these concepts hold almost the same idea. These concepts are very useful in the food industry, rubber industry and whole of the material science. In this article,...

### Difference Between Relative Density and Density

// Jul 13th, 2011
Relative Density vs Density Density and relative density are two closely related physical properties of matter. Both parameters describe the amount of matter in a unit volume. These terms are mostly used in fluid statistics/dynamics and chemistry. Density Density is a measure of the amount of matter available...

### Difference Between Density and Specific Gravity

// Jan 2nd, 2011
Density vs Specific Gravity Density and Specific Gravity are the two commonly used terms but often confused with each other. Particularly, in industries these terms are widely used to weigh different substance and to calculate the concentration of liquids. Temperature and pressure are very important in calculating...
