Problem 9E

The specific gravity of a substance is given by G = DS/DW, where Ds is the density of the substance in kg/m3 and DW is the density of water, which is known to be 1000 kg/m3. The density of a particular substance is measured to be DS = 500 ± 5 kg/m3. Estimate the specific gravity, and find the uncertainty in the estimate.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 3:

Given the specific gravity of a substance is given by

Where,  is the density of the substance in

D is the density of water, it's to be 1000

The density of a particular substance is measured to be  = 5005
