# Specific Volume Units Converter

Coversion factor: 1 m

^{3}/kg = 1000 cm^{3}/g## Additional information

Specific volume is a physical property used in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics to describe the volume of a substance per unit mass. It represents the amount of space occupied by one unit mass of a substance. Specific volume is the reciprocal of density and is expressed in units such as cubic meters per kilogram (m^{3}/kg) or liters per gram (L/g).

Mathematically, specific volume is defined as:

$\mathit{\nu}=\frac{V}{m}$Where:

- $\mathit{\nu}$ is the specifc volume
- V is the volume
- m is the mass

The standard unit for specific volume in the International System of Units (SI) is cubic meters per kilogram (m^{3}/kg).
