Specific volume calculator finds a special type of volume, aka specific volume, using the density of the liquids. You can also find density by entering the specific volume. This means it works both ways.

## What is specific volume?

The specific volume of liquids refers to a unit mass of material. It is the volume (in cubic meters) occupied by one kilogram. The SI unit for specific volume is m3kg-1.

Experimentally, Specific volume can be measured through the displacement of liquids.

For this purpose, hydrometers are used. This displacement is divided by weight afterward to calculate the specific volume.

## Specific volume formula

Specific volume is simply reciprocal of the density of the material. It is calculated by the equation:

V = 1/ρ

Where, ρ is the symbol used to represent density.

## How to calculate the specific volume?

Example

Find the specific volume of water at 20 degrees.

Solution:

Step 1: Write the density of the material.

ρ of water = 998.3 kgm-3

Step 2: Find the reciprocal of the density.

ρ = 1 / 998.3

ρ = 0.001 kgm-3
