Volume of Urine or Body Fluid from Specific Gravity and Weight

Specialty:

Clinical Laboratory

Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

The specific gravity of a fluid is the weight of the fluid relative to that of an equal volume of a reference substance, typically water. It is related to the density (weight per volume) of the fluid. If the weight and specific gravity of a urine sample are known, then the volume can be calculated.
