Enter the specific volume (m^3/kg) into the Density From Specific Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Density From Specific Volume. 

Density From Specific Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Density From Specific Volume. 

D = 1 / SV

  • Where D is the Density From Specific Volume (kg/m^3)
  • SV is the specific volume (m^3/kg) 

How to Calculate Density From Specific Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Density From Specific Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the specific volume (m^3/kg). 
    1. The specific volume (m^3/kg) is given as: 1.5.
  2. Finally, calculate the Density From Specific Volume using the equation above: 

D = 1 / SV

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

D = 1 / 1.5 = .667 (kg/m^3)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

specific volume (m^3/kg) = 2.5

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

D = 1 / SV = ?
