On Earth, the material Osmium has the highest density at 22.59

g/cm3 and hence the highest specific gravity (as specific gravity

is the density of a material relative to a reference material -

commonly water).

### Value of Specific gravity of air?

Specific gravity is often defined relative to water, in which
case the specific gravity of air is 0.001225. Specific gravity can
also be defined relative to the density of air, in which case the
specific gravity of air is exactly 1. Specific gravity is often
