## Show that the specific weight and density are related according to specific weight = (density) (acceleration due to gravity).

To determine

Verify the given relation between the specific weight and density.

### Explanation of Solution

Formula used:

Consider the general expression for the specific weight.

specificweight=weightvolume (1)

Calculation:

Write the expression for the weight.

weight=(mass)(accelerationduetogravity) (2)

Consider the expression for the mass of any object.

mass=(density)(volume) (3)

Substitute equation (3) in (2),

weight=(density)(volume)
