Specific Gravity, Temperatures of Solvents/Fluids

SPECIFIC GRAVITY OF SOLVENTS(FLUIDS) specific gravity:                It's also called  relative density, ratio of the density of a substance to that of a standard substance . ... If a substance has specific gravity less than that of a fluid, it will float on that fluid: helium-filled balloons will rise in air, oil will form a slick on water, and lead will float on mercury.
