## what is the density of the fluid , if the relative density

For anything related to Physics, Chemistry and the interactions between those fields and mathematics.

### what is the density of the fluid , if the relative density

Fill the blank : Mass density of liquid = Relative density of liquid X .......

2 ) what is the density of the fluid , if the relative density of fluid is 3.2 ?

weight = density X gravity
gravity = 3.2 X 100 = 320

3 ) which of the following is the density of 2m^3 of oil , if its weight is 10 N ?
A . 0.509 kg/m^3
B)5 N/m^3
C ) 0.509N/m^3

volume = 2
weight = 10 convet = 1.0197 kg

density = 1.0197 / 2 = 5.09X 10^-1

### Re: what is the density of the fluid , if the relative densi

1.) From $RD=\frac{\rho_{\text{substance}}}{\rho_{\text{reference}}}$ we then find:

$\rho_{\text{substance}}=RD\times\rho_{\text{reference}}$

2.) $3.2=\frac{\rho_{\text{substance}}}{\rho_{\text{reference}}}$

$3.2\rho_{\text{reference}}=\rho_{\text{substance}}$

$\rho_{\text{substance}}=3.2\cdot\frac{1000\text{ kg}}{1\text{ m^3}}=3200\text{ \frac{kg}{m^3}}$

3.) I am assuming we want mass density, because weight density would simply be option B).

$\rho=\frac{\frac{10\text{ N}}{g}}{2\text{ m^3}}=\frac{\frac{10}{9.81}\:\text{kg}}{2\text{ m^3}}\approx0.509\text{ \frac{kg}{m^3}}$

thanks so much , but I hope the answer was like formula which I done above ..

anyway ,,,, I don't understand the answer of Q1

### Re: what is the density of the fluid , if the relative densi

The relative density or specific gravity of a fluid is the ratio of the mass density of the fluid to the mass density of the reference fluid, which unless specified is taken to be water at 3.98° C. Thus the mass density of a fluid is the relative density of the fluid times the mass density of the reference fluid.
