Specific Volume

Specific volume refers to the volume that is occupied by a unit of mass of a material or substance, also termed as property of materials. The specific volume is the reciprocal of the density. It is denoted by the symbol "v".

kg/m3
kg/m3

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
