Gram per cubic centimetre
The gram per cubic centimetre is a unit of density in the CGS system, commonly used in chemistry, defined as mass in grams divided by volume in cubic centimetres. The official SI symbols are g/cm3, g·
The zodi is a unit of zodiacal dust. One zodi is the amount of interplanetary dust in the inner Solar System. This dust absorbs light from the Sun and re-radiates it as thermal radiation. The luminosi
API gravity
The American Petroleum Institute gravity, or API gravity, is a measure of how heavy or light a petroleum liquid is compared to water: if its API gravity is greater than 10, it is lighter and floats on
Dots per inch
Dots per inch (DPI, or dpi) is a measure of spatial printing, video or image scanner dot density, in particular the number of individual dots that can be placed in a line within the span of 1 inch (2.
Oechsle scale
The Oechsle scale is a hydrometer scale measuring the density of grape must, which is an indication of grape ripeness and sugar content used in wine-making. It is named for Ferdinand Oechsle (1774–185
Sigma-t is a quantity used in oceanography to measure the density of seawater at a given temperature. σT is defined as ρ(S,T)-1000 kg m−3, where ρ(S,T) is the density of a sample of seawater at temper
Baumé scale
The Baumé scale is a pair of hydrometer scales developed by French pharmacist Antoine Baumé in 1768 to measure density of various liquids. The unit of the Baumé scale has been notated variously as deg

Samples per inch
Samples per inch (SPI) is a measurement of the resolution of an image scanner, in particular the number of individual samples that are taken in the space of one linear inch. It is sometimes misreferre
Kilogram per cubic metre
The kilogram per cubic metre (symbol: kg·m−3, or kg/m3) is the unit of density in the International System of Units (SI), defined by mass in kilograms divided by volume in cubic metres.
Lines per inch
Lines per inch (LPI) is a measurement of printing resolution. A line consists of halftones that is built up by physical ink dots made by the printer device to create different tones. Specifically LPI
Degrees Brix (symbol °Bx) is a measure of the dissolved solids in a liquid, and is commonly used to measure dissolved sugar content of an aqueous solution. One degree Brix is 1 gram of sucrose in 100
An amagat is a practical unit of volumetric number density. Although it can be applied to any substance at any conditions, it is defined as the number of ideal gas molecules per unit volume at 1 atm (
