The specific weight of the fluid depends upon

  1. Gravitational acceleration
  2. The mass density of the fluid
  3. Both A and B
  4. None of the above

Answer: C. Both A and B

The specific weight of the fluid depends upon gravitational acceleration and mass density of the fluid.

Solution

The weight of the liquid per unit volume under standard temperature and pressure conditions is defined as the specific weight of that liquid.

ϒ=W/V

where,

W = weight of the fluid

V = volume of the fluid

We know that,

W = m×g

where,

m = mass of the fluid

g = acceleration due to gravity

ϒ=g/V

Mass density of the fluid,ρ =(mass of the fluid)/(volume of the fluid)=m/V

ϒ=(m/V) x g

ϒ=ρ x g

Therefore, it can be concluded that the specific weight of the fluid depends upon gravitational acceleration and the mass density of the fluid.
