## Specific Volume Formula

The following equation can be used to calculate a specific volume.

V = v/m

- Where V is the specific volume m^3/kg
- v is the volume (m^3)
- m is the mass (kg)

Other units for volume and mass can be substituted for the ones above. The resulting specific volume will correspond with the units used.

## Specific Volume Definition

A specific volume is a measure of the total volume per unit mass. In other words is the inverse of density.
