My goal is to monitor the change in specific gravity of a liquid over a period of time. My question is: What are the appropriate formula for determining expected apparent weight of an object immersed in a liquid where the liquids specific gravity g/ml is expected to change?
EG. If I were to take an object who's density is 2.6 (average for glass) weighing 100 grams and plunk it into distilled water I believe I should expect an apparent weight should be roughly 61.53 grams. Please let me know if I am just horridly wrong.
So then if that distilled waters density/specific gravity were to change say to 1.010, would my new apparent weight of the object be 61.15 grams?
My math is not solid in this. I'm basically using ratios in order to produce these answers. Please for the sake of simplicity if you are to choose to answer leave out extenuating circumstances such as temperature of the liquid/object and possible compression of the object due to pressure.
If you do chose to add extenuating circumstances I would ask to add those concepts as tertiary answers.
I'm sure that my question is probably very basic, but grasping the concepts has proven perplexing to me. I am probably not using the correct search. Your help in this simple question is greatly appreciated.
