How to Calculate Relative Density of Fluid?
Relative Density of Fluid calculator uses Relative Density = Density of Substance/Density of Water to calculate the Relative Density, The Relative Density of Fluid formula is defined as the ratio of density of substance to the density of water. It is a dimensionless quantity because it is the ratio of two similar quantity which have the same units. Buoyancy (the ability of an object to float in water or air) is intimately related to specific gravity. If a substance has specific gravity less than that of a fluid: it will float on that fluid, If a substance has specific gravity greater than that of a fluid: it will sink in that fluid. Relative Density is denoted by RD symbol.
How to calculate Relative Density of Fluid using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Relative Density of Fluid, enter Density of Substance (ρ) & Density of Water (ρ_{w}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Relative Density of Fluid calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.130391 = 130/997.
