### Specific Gravity of Soil Test by Pycnometer Method.

Specific Gravity of Soil Definition. The specific gravity of soil is defined as the unit weight of the soil mass divided by the unit weight of distilled water at 4°C. It is some times required to compare the density of the soil solids to the density of water. This comparison is in the form of ratio and is termed as the specific gravity of the soil.
