    The specific weight of a liquid can be defined as wight of the liquid per unit volume at a standard temperature and pressure conditions. If is denoted by 'γ' .

    γ = (Weight) / (Volume) = w / V = (m g) / V = ρ x g

    Hence, specific weight of the liquid depends upon mass density (ρ) and gravitational acceleration
