API Gravity

API (American Petroleum Institute) gravity is a dimensionless measure of the density of a petroleum liquid (e.g. oil) compared to water.

For an API gravity greater than 10, a petroleum liquid will float on water. Conversely, an API gravity less than 10, will cause petroleum liquid to sink in water.

As such, an oil with a low specific gravity will have a high API gravity.
