General Behavior Weight Weight of a quantity of fluid is  W = mg   Where: m   = mass (kg) g     = standard earth gravity  = 9.81 m /s 2  or 32.174 ft/s 2 Unit in kg m / s 2  or Newton (N)

General Behavior Mass (m) Defined as the amount of matter in an  object.  Unit : kg

General Behavior Density ( ρ ) The quantity of matter contained in a unit  volume of the substance.  Unit: kg /m 3 - Density of liquid is nearly constant - Density of water = 998 kg / m 3 v m volume mass = =
Background image of page 6
General Behavior - Density is highly variable in gases and is a  function of the gas composition, its  temperature and its pressure. Where: P = pressure T = temperature R = gas constant RT P = ρ

General Behavior Specific Gravity (SG) Ratio of a fluid density to a standard  reference fluid, water (for liquid) and air  (for gases). Unit : None 3 / 1000 m kg SG liquid water liquid liquid ρ = = 3 / 205 . 1 m kg SG gas air gas gas = =
