Specific Volume

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Specific volume is the volume in a unit of mass.

formula

\(\upsilon = \frac{V}{m}\;\)

\(\upsilon = \frac{1}{\rho}\;\)

Where:

\(\upsilon\) (Greek symbol upsilon) = specific volume

\(V\) = volume

\(m\) = mass

\(\rho\) (Greek symbol rho) = density

Solve for:

\(\rho = \frac{1}{\upsilon}\;\)
