Free Template from www.brainybe 4 Mass and Volume In Chemical processes there are a number of variable that typically play an important role. Density ( ρ ) : The mass of a material per unit volume (kg/m 2 , g/cm 3 , Ibm/ft 3 ) Specific Volume : Volume per unit mass (unit???) v m = ρ 1 = SV
Free Template from www.brainybe 5 Specific Gravity : is the ratio of one’s material density to that of reference material (typically water at 4 o C) ρ reference = 62.4 Ibm/ft 3 = 1000 kg/m 3 REF SG ρ =
