Specific Gravity is a unit in the category of Density. Specific Gravity has a dimension of ML-3 where M is mass, and L is length. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit kg/m3 by multiplying its value by a factor of 1000.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
Other units in the category of Density include Gram Per Cubic Centimeter (g/cm3), Gram Per Cubic Meter (g/m3), Gram Per Liter (g/l), Kilogram Per Cubic Decimeter (kg/dm3), Kilogram Per Cubic Meter (kg/m3), Kilogram Per Liter (kg/l), Ounce (av.) Per Cubic Foot (oz (av.)/ft3), Ounce (av.) Per Cubic Inch (oz (av.)/in3), Pound Mass Per Cubic Foot (lbm/ft3), Pound Mass Per Cubic Inch (lbm/in3), Pound Mass Per Cubic Yard (lbm/yd3), Pound Mass Per Gallon (UK) (lbm/gal (UK)), Pound Mass Per Gallon (US, Liq.) (lbm/gal (US, liq.)), Slug Per Cubic Foot (slug/ft3), Slug Per Cubic Inch (slug/in3), and Slug Per Cubic Yard (slug/yd3).
