Unformatted text preview: W w W a w g V d = so the volume is: V d W a W w w g = Now the density of the crown is: c M V d = M w g W a W w = W a W a W w w = Therefore, the specific gravity of the crown is: SG c w = W a W a W w = SG W a W a W w = Note: by definition specific gravity is the density of an object divided by the density of water at 4 degrees Celsius, so the measured temperature of the water in the experiment and the data from tables A.7 or A.8 may be used to correct for the variation in density of the water with temperature....
