# Apparent Solid Specific Gravity Calculator

Apparent specific gravity can be determined as the ratio of the volume/mass of the substance to the ratio of an equal amount of volume/mass of the reference substance. The reference sample is always near water and its air of gases at the room temperature. An online Apparent solid specific gravity calculator to calculate the apparent solid specific gravity of a specimen based on the weight of dry piece in a fluid, density of fluid and weight of dry piece soaked & immersed in a fluid.

An online Apparent solid specific gravity calculator to calculate the apparent solid specific gravity of a specimen based on the weight of dry piece in a fluid, density of fluid and weight of dry piece soaked & immersed in a fluid.

#### Formula:

Ga = (W x D) / (W - I) Where, Ga = Apparent Solid Specific Gravity W = Weight of Dry Piece in Fluid D = Density of Fluid I = Weight of Dry Piece Soaked & Immersed in Fluid

### Example:

Calculate the apparent solid specific gravity of a sample in which the weights of the dry piece in fluid and dry piece soaked & immersed in fluid be 50 and 45 whereas the density of the liquid is found to be 25.

#### Solution:

Ga = (50 x 25) / (50 - 45)
= 250
