**Specific Gravity**

**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/m

^{3}by multiplying its value by a factor of 1000.

Other units in the category of Density include Gram Per Cubic Centimeter (g/cm^{3}), Gram Per Cubic Meter (g/m^{3}), Gram Per Liter (g/l), Kilogram Per Cubic Decimeter (kg/dm^{3}), Kilogram Per Cubic Meter (kg/m^{3}), Kilogram Per Liter (kg/l), Ounce (av.) Per Cubic Foot (oz (av.)/ft^{3}), Ounce (av.) Per Cubic Inch (oz (av.)/in^{3}), Pound Mass Per Cubic Foot (lbm/ft^{3}), Pound Mass Per Cubic Inch (lbm/in^{3}), Pound Mass Per Cubic Yard (lbm/yd^{3}), Pound Mass Per Gallon (UK) (lbm/gal (UK)), Pound Mass Per Gallon (US, Liq.) (lbm/gal (US, liq.)), Slug Per Cubic Foot (slug/ft^{3}), Slug Per Cubic Inch (slug/in^{3}), and Slug Per Cubic Yard (slug/yd^{3}).
