    Formula

    Specific Volume :
    V = 1/ρ

    Density :
    ρ =1/V

    Where,
    v = Specific Volume,
    ρ = Density.

    In short, specific is termed as volume per unit mass of a substance. This online Specific Volume Calculator is useful in calculating the specific volume of a mass unit of substance.

    Example:
    Calculate the specific volume for the given details.
    Density (ρ) = 25 kg/m3

    Solution:
    Apply formula:
    V = 1/ ρ
    V = 1/25 kg/m3
    Specific Volume (v) = 0.04 m3/kg
