I have volume of a fluid in gallons, the specific gravity, and temperature.
Does anyone know the formula for converting the volume to 20 degC?

I believe you convert the temp to C then divide by 20C. but I haven't seen your equation.

Hello Everyone,
I need help. I dont understand how to find the density and specific gravity for this problem: 50 grams in 49mL. Please help me I'm stuck.

mass/volume

~ 1.02 g/mL

Specific gravity is 1.02

Ken D and Asikoura,

You might be thinking of gases, where you can do this if the gas in question obeys the ideal gas law. You have to convert the temperatures to Kelvin.

I'm not sure that liquids obey the same sort of rules, it is possible that molecules in a liquid behave in different ways as they warm up, therefore not obeying any sort of linear rule.

Specific gravity is weight relative to the weight of an equal volume of water (62.4 lb/ft³), so SG = 57.4/62.4 = 0.920.
