SG - specific gravity
Ratio of the liquid density to the water density at specific temperature
American Petroleum Institute gravity. It's a measure of how heavy or light a petroleum liquid is compared to water. If its API gravity is greater than 10, it is lighter and floats on water. If less than 10, it is heavier and sinks
Density of the liquid in Baumé scale
v - specific volume
Specific volume of the liquid
ρ - Density
Liquid density - mass to volume ratio

Calculation setup

Select value to input. Calculator will give you all the rest
input specific gravity
input liquid gravity in API degrees
input density is Baume degrees
Lighter than water
Pressed if liquid is lighter than water - only if Baume is selected to input
