# Bulk Specific Gravity Calculator

Bulk specific gravity of aggregates can be defined as the ratio of oven-dry weight of the aggregate to the bulk volume of the aggregate particles. It is the ratio of mass of the substance at the stated temperature to the mass of the volume of the distilled water at the specified temperature. Free online Bulk specific gravity calculator to do bulk specific gravity of coarse aggregate calculation based on the weight of dry piece in fluid, density, weight of dry piece soaked and immersed in fluid.

#### Formula:

Gb = (W x D) / (S - I) Where, Gb = Bulk Specific Gravity W = Weight of Dry Piece in Fluid D = Density of Fluid S = Weight of Dry Piece Soaked in Fluid I = Weight of Dry Piece Soaked & Immersed in Fluid

### Example:

Calculate the bulk specific gravity of coarse aggregate with the weights of dry piece in fluid, dry piece soaked in fluid and dry piece soaked & immersed in fluid be 50, 40, 30 and the density of fluid be 20.

#### Solution:

Gb = (50 x 20) / (40 - 30)
= 100
