Density and specific volume - thermodynamics, Mechanical Engineering

DENSITY (ρ ):

Density is defined as mass per unit volume; Density = mass/ volume; = m/v, kg/m3

P for Hg = 13.6 × 103  kg/m3

for water = 1000 kg/m3

Specific Volume (ν):

It is defined as volume occupied by the unit mass of the system. The unit of it is unit is m3/kg. Specific volume is reciprocal of density.

               = v/m; m3/kg
