• Summary
• ## Summary

• The density cup consists of a cylindrical container and lid with a hole for the exhaust of excess liquid.

• Key Features

## How to use a Density Cup (Pyknometer)

1. Weigh the cup and lid when empty

2. Fill the cup with liquid to the very top

3. Place lid on the Cup, removing excess liquid*

4. Weigh the Density Cup when full

5. Divide the weight of the liquid by the cup volume/capacity to determine the Specific Gravity

The formulae for calculating Density and Specific Gravity are:

Density = Liquid Weight / Cup Volume

Specific Gravity = Density of the Material / Density of Water at the Same Temperature

Note:
50cc = 50cm³ = Volume
100cc = 100cm³ = Volume

*Each Cup has an escape hole in the lid to allow excess liquid to escape. Any excess liquid should be removed before weighing.
