How to Calculate the Specific Gravity of Minerals.?

Answer

1. Weigh the mineral-while dry-on a balance. Then immerse it in water. Weigh the mineral again immersed in the water. Density is mass divided by volume. 2. Use the formula SG = D/D(H20) SG = specific gravity, D = the density of the mineral, and
