Take a look at air. Jiggle humidity, temp and pressure/altitude until
you get the magic 1 kg/m^3.

Why again does a SI unit need a natural analog with a ratio of 1?

Actually, I lied. The units are not kg/m^3.
The units are N s^2/(m^4) or Pascal s^2 / m^2.
Basically, mass density is pressure times square seconds
divided by square meters.

(N = kg m/s/s so this works from a units standpoint. However,
most people would simply use kg/m^3.)

Wait until he looks up how seconds: (The second is the duration of 9 192
631 770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between
the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium 133 atom) and
meters: (The meter is the length of the path travelled by light in
vacuum during a time interval of 1/299 792 458 of a second)are defined.
That's going to complicate the search for the magic ratio of "1" almost
everywhere.

Don't you mean 'your mass' decreases, and that God is spiritual?

The sixth edition of AISC's manual of Steel Construction lists Air, at
0 degrees C, and 760 mm, pressure, as having a specific gravity of
1.0: With hydrogen being the lightest; @ 0.00599 pounds per cubic
foot.

Now there's a crock for you:

The quantity of matter [m] in any body or mass can be expressed as
various ratios:

[m] = w/vol. = f/a = ft/(s/t) = ft^2/s = w/g

Then, by ‘dimensional analysis'; we find from [m] = w/(vol), that w =
[m]/vol. and f = [m]/a = wa/g :: ... that

1 newton = 1newton x a/(9.81 m/sec^2) ... _NOT_ N = 1 kg·s-2!!!

Your mass does decrease when you pee... and so does your volume. What is
important in this thread is that your density increases when you pee!

In article <[Only registered users see links. ]> ,

So if the temperature of the platinum rises, the platinum is less dense
than it was before. Density is still kg/m^3, except there's more m^3 in
the denominator.

I feel like you wanted to make some point besides that density changes
with temperature.

Why does anything have to have units of one kg/m^3?

Oh, same as the specific gravity of water! Good, Donald.

But what does it tell us about the density of air, in real units of
density?

On Earth, of course, that would be somewhere between 0.00596 lbf/ft³
and 0.00602 lbf/ft³, then you need to multiply by whatever the
conversion factor is between normal pounds force that other people use
and Dense Donny pounds force to get your favorite units for this
quantity, Donald.
