ACL SG Calculator

Specific Gravity

The relative weight or density of a solid or fluid expressed by the ratio of its weight to that of an equal volume of a substance taken as a standard, water in the case of liquids and solids, air for gases e.g. Water = 1.

Other examples:

Whisky = 0.90, Turpentine = 0.86, Kerosene = 0.80, Fruit Juice = 1.34, Phosphoric Acid = 1.8 – 1.9, Bromine Trifluoride = 2.49, Aviation Fuel = 0.63 – 0.79.

The higher the SG, the smaller the tank will be, all things being equal.
