“Degrees Brix (symbol °Bx) is a unit representative of the sugar content of an aqueous solution.”
One degree Brix corresponds to 1 gram of sucrose in 100 grams of solution and thus represents the strength of the solution as a percentage by weight (% w/w). Density : Density Definition:
“The mass density or density of a material is defined as its mass per unit volume.”
The symbol most often used for density is ρ (the Greek letter rho).
Mathematically, density is defined as mass divided by volume:
ρ = m/v
SI unit is kilogram per cubic metre (kg/m³). Specific Gravity (Relative Density): : Specific Gravity (Relative Density): The Specific Gravity - SG - is a dimensionless unit defined as:
“The ratio of density of the material to the density of water at a specified temperature.”
Specific Gravity can be expressed as:
SG = = ρ / ρH2O
It has no unit. Density vs. Specific Gravity : Density vs. Specific Gravity *** : *** . Thank you
