Ques. How do we determine the specific gravity of a cement ?
We can determine the specific gravity of a cement by Le-Chateliers flask method:-
Le chateliers flask of 250 ml,
Ordinary Portland Cement,
Step 1:- Take apparatus & weight it.
(we can say weight of empty as w1)
Step 2:- Fill the cement on the bottle upto half of the flask.
(we can say weight of flask with half filled
cement as w2)
Step 3:- Add kerosene to the cement upto top of the flask and mix it properly.
(we can say weight of flask filled with cement and kerosene as w3)
Step 4:- Empty the flask and fully filled with kerosene upto the top of flask.
(now we can say weight of the flask fully filled with kerosene as w4)
