Is the volume of a given weight of gas, usually expressed as cu ft/lb as SPT conditions. ( 030)

The volume of a definite weight of a material.

(Spv), in m3/kg, is the reciprocal of density and is indicated by a set of slightly sloping lines on the psychrometric chart.

The volume occupied by a unit mass of a substance. This is the reciprocal of density and the units as such would be m3/kg.

The reciprocal of density and is used to determine the cubic feet of volume, if the pounds of weight are known. Both density and specific volume are affected by temperature and pressure. The specific volume of air under standard conditions is 13.33 cubic feet per pound and the specific volume of water at standard conditions is 0.016 cubic feet per pound.

The number of cubic feet occupied by one pound of a substance at a given pressure and temperature.

A term used for graded sand in hydraulic fracturing. The ‘specific volume' of a granular material is the actual volume occupied by the grains.

amount of space occupied by a unit mass of a substance

The volume of a material in cubic feet per pound, calculated as the reciprocal of density.

is the volume of a given weight of gas, usually expressed as cu ft/lb at specific conditions.

volume per unit mass; the reciprocal of density

Compare with density. The volume of a unit mass of substance. For example, the specific volume of water at 4°C is 1.00000 mL/g. Specific volume is the reciprocal of density.

It is inverse of density. It is volume per unit weight. Unit is cc/gr.

Volume of a unit mass of substance at a given temperature. Expressed as cubic feet per pound at 700 F.

Volume per unit mass of a substance.

The total volume of a quantity of soil containing a unit volume of soil grains. v = 1 + e

The volume of a unit weight of a substance at a specific temperature and pressure.

Volume of one gram of a substance at a specific temperature, usually 68°F (20°C).

See Density.

Specific volume (v) is the volume occupied by a unit of mass of a material. It is equal to the inverse of density. Specific volume may be expressed in \frac{m^3}{kg} or \frac{ft^3}{lb} .
