Describe it.

Harshad said: (Jun 23, 2017)  
Specific weight is weight divided by volume, as weight depends upon mass and acceleration due to gravity and gravity changes place to place. So the answer should be C.

Sujit Kumar said: (Jul 24, 2017)  
I think change on other planet.

Sharad Sp said: (Oct 9, 2017)  
It should be opt c.

It will varies place to place.

Ram Avtar said: (Nov 16, 2017)  
Please would you tell me that what the difference between option B and C?

Rajak said: (Nov 19, 2017)  
I think option B and C are correct.

Prateek Kashyap said: (Dec 23, 2017)  
As the change of value of g is negligible on earth, so the correct answer will only be B.

Ravindra Maurya said: (Jan 23, 2018)  
Sp wt w=pg.

It depends on g only so B, C correct.

Anil Pokhriyal said: (Jun 21, 2018)  
So at= wt. /vol, with an increase in temperature Specific weight Decrease because Temp increase, vol. Of fluid increase.

Lovey Gill454@Gmail.Com said: (Jul 25, 2018)  
I think it changes on another planet.

Anuj said: (Jul 31, 2018)  
It should be B, as the acc Due to gravity changes from place to place even on our earth, so the Specific weight Also changes in accordance.

Anurag Raput said: (Feb 3, 2019)  
B and C both correct.

Because Sp.Wt =density (multiply) acceleration. Acceleration is variable place to place.

Vaish said: (Feb 27, 2019)  
B should be the correct answer.

Pawan said: (Mar 15, 2019)  
Mass remains the same everywhere.

But, SP. Weight (N/mm^2) changes from place to place.

Rajan Kushwaha said: (Jul 19, 2019)  
I think the answer should be B and C because the value of g change from place to place even on earth so it does not remain contact at every place. And specific weight depends upon g and mass So it will change from place to place.

Hemchandra said: (Jan 9, 2020)  

It means w is directly proportional to gravity. Hence w will not vary anywhere on the earth as gravitational acceleration is assumed more or less constant all over the earth

But this force of gravity varies on other planets hence sp.wt will change too.

Here 'other places' refers to places including earth and universe.

Answer must be B and C.

Kumarisagina said: (Apr 29, 2020)  
C is the correct answer.

Sumit Malik said: (Oct 22, 2020)  
Specific weight is directly proportional to the weight of the fluid, means mass x gravitational force. And g is not constant at every place.

So, the answer should be C.

Vishvjeet said: (Jan 2, 2021)  
Option C is the correct answer.

Mjm Gcek said: (Jul 26, 2021)  
Yes, both option B and C should be correct.

Shrikant said: (Jul 28, 2021)  
Specific wt= wt/Vol & weight = mg and value of g varies for e.g in the moon it is 1/6th of the value of g. So The specific weight varies.

Abdullah said: (Aug 4, 2021)  
Both option B and C are correct.

Please describe this in detail.
