### What is the Specific weight of aluminum?

the atomic mass is 26.981539
if that's what you're looking for.
NO. Not at all. The question wasn't atomic weight, but SPECIFIC
WEIGHT.
SPECIFIC WEIGHT is the ratio of DENSITY of the material to the
Density of Water at an established set of conditions.
Thus, the Specific weight of Aluminum is approximately 2.7 times
the weight of water.
So that if you have a cubic foot of aluminum, it will weight
more or less two point seven times the weight of a cubic foot...

###### Asked in Environmental Issues

### How is your weight affected in the water?

Your weight is reduced. If your body floats and you cannot make
it sink, you are weightless (a scale put under you will not
register any weight) and the weight of the water you displace will
equal your land weight. If you can make yourself bouyant (neither
sinking nor floating) then you are also weightless, and your land
weight is the same as your body's volume of water. If you can make
yourself sink by exhaling and allowing your body to...
