* Atomic volume = Atomic weight ÷Specific Gravity. By atomic volume is meant the volume in cubic centimeters which a combining weight in grammes of the element occupies. In textbooks and papers, the density is usually given instead of the specific volume, which is its reciprocal, i.e. to find the atomic volume, the atomic weight is divided by the density.
