## What is the specific gravity of water at different temperatures?

Temperature | Pressure | SG at reference temperature |
---|---|---|

[°C] | 4 °C | |

0.1 | 1 atm 14.7 psi 101.3 kPa | 0.99987 |

1 | 0.99993 | |

4 | 1.00000 |

## Does specific gravity of water change with temperature?

Can temperature affect specific gravity? Yes, it can. When using water as a reference for establishing specific gravity, it is almost always assumed that the water is at 4°C, when it’s densest. In cases where the temperature or pressures of the two substances differ, the discrepancy must be corrected.

**What is the specific gravity of water at 4 Celsius?**

1.000

In less dense liquids the hydrometer will float lower, while in more dense liquids it will float higher. Since water is the “standard” by which other liquids are measured, the mark for water is probably labeled as “1.000”; hence, the specific gravity of water at about 4°C is 1.000.

### How do you calculate the specific gravity of water?

The formula for specific gravity, given that the reference substance is water, is the density of the object divided by the density of the water.

### How do you calculate specific gravity of water?

Specific gravity is determined by dividing the density of a material by the density of water at 4 degrees Celsius. For the calculation, the density of the material and that of the water must be expressed in the same units.

**Does SG go up or down with temperature?**

The reference substance is nearly always water at its densest (4°C) for liquids; for gases it is air at room temperature (21°C). Nonetheless, the temperature and pressure must be specified for both the sample and the reference….Services Specific Gravity Determination.

Material | Specific Gravity |
---|---|

Osmium | 22.59 |

#### Does temperature affect gravity readings?

Temperature issues can show up and affect the final gravity in all-grain batches. Higher mash temperatures will yield more unfermentable sugars, while lower ones will sacrifice body for yeast food.

#### What is the specific gravity of water at 20 C?

Table of Density of Pure & Tap* Water and Specific Gravity

Temp ( °C ) | Density pure water ( g/cm3 ) | Specific Gravity 4°C reference |
---|---|---|

4 | 1.0000 | 1.000 |

20 | 0.9982 | 0.998 |

40 | 0.9922 | 0.992 |

60 | 0.9832 | 0.983 |

**Is specific gravity of water always 1?**

Water has a specific gravity equal to 1. Materials with a specific gravity less than 1 are less dense than water, and will float on the pure liquid; substances with a specific gravity more than 1 are more dense than water, and will sink.
