example 1.9 - a rock is 0.00015m3. if the rock's specific gravity is 2.60, what is its weight?
solution does this:
(2.60)(9.79)=25.5 kN/m3 W-(25.5)(0.00015)=3.82N
no clue where the 9.79 came from...gravity is 9.81 m/s2... i can only assume they used 9.79 as gravity but then on problem 1.11, they do use 9.81...CONFUSING.
This book is a good review book for those working in fluid design.
