Live ChatList Table of Specific Gravity of Minerals Previous Next This table of various minerals (ore, rock types) listed by their tested SG specific gravity complements the BWi List found in earlier post.

Live ChatThe specific gravity of all other materials are compared to water as a fraction heavier or lighter density. For example, ammonium nitrate has a specific gravity (sg) of 0.73 while dry ammonium sulphate has a sg of 1.13 (1130 kilograms/cubic metre) (see table below)

Live ChatSpecific gravity is equal to the density of the iron ore divided by the density of water. The densities change with temperature, so I will assume a temperature of 4 degrees C for this calculation.
