Baume's Hydrometer

Liquid density with Degree Baume vs. Specific Gravity.

The density of a liquid can be measured in degree Baumé.

Note that there are two scales:

  • one for liquids with densities heavier than water
  • one for liquids with densities lighter than water

Note that the relationship between specific gravity and degrees Baumé is a function of the temperature. Different versions of the scale may use different reference temperatures. The table and chart below is based on temperature 60oF (16oC).
