Specific Gravity of gold can easily be calculated by using a cup of water, a string, a tripod, and a scale. All you need to do to calculate the specific gravity is submerge your gold or silver or any other precious metal item in water and do 1 simple calculation.

Live ChatAssuming that the specific gravity of gold is 19.3 and the specific gravity of quartz is 2.65, we have: Thus the weight of gold would be 1.16 times the weight of the sample in air minus 3.07 times the weight of the displaced water.

Live ChatSpecific Gravity Of Metals Table. Temperature and purity will often have a definite effect. As 1000kg of pure water @ 4°C = 1 cubic meter, those materials under 1000kg per cubic meter will float more dense materials will obviously sink. Those materials have a specific gravity more than 1. Pure water at 4°C (the maximum density)...

Live ChatDivide 1000 by this total the answer is the specific gravity of the alloy. Example: Find the

Live ChatThe simplest way to test specific gravity is weigh the quartz gold specimen in air and multiply the weight by 1.9. Then weigh the quartz gold specimen fully submerged in distilled water and multiply that weight by 3.1. Minus the wet figure from the dry figure and you will get a fairly accurate specific gravity for that specimen!!

Live ChatFor example, beryllium has a specific gravity (sg) of 1.84 ( 1840 kg/cu.m) (see table below) As specific gravity is just a comparison, it can be applied across any units. The density of pure water is also 62.4 lbs/cu.ft (pounds per cubic foot) and if we know that a sample of alumimium has a
