Importance, significance, dignity, etc; hence, seriousness; enormity; as, the gravity of an offense.
The tendency of a mass of matter toward a center of attraction; esp., the tendency of a body toward the center of the earth; terrestrial gravitation.
A geophysical method used to detect rock bodies of different densities. The force of gravity is large over a dense body. The force of gravity is smaller over a rock body which is less dense.
the force that a celestial body exerts on any small mass close to its surface
A reference to the specific gravity of a beer or wine. Gravity may at times refer to "Gravity Points", which are the units of the reading which follow the decimal point. That is, a wort with a specific gravity of 1.045 has 45 gravity points, and a wort with a gravity of 1.105 has 105 points. Since gravity points effectively remove the "water portion" of a specific gravity reading (water being 1.000 in gravity), they isolate the sugar content of the wort. This facilitates the mathematics of beer, where the amount of sugar each ingredient adds to the wort may be measured or predicted using points per pound per gallon (p/p/g). This technique is the principle behind the original gravity portion of the brewer's calculator.
The weight of a liquid relative to the weight of an equal volume of water. Specific gravity must be checked before and after fermentation. Used as an indication of the amount of alcohol present in the finished beer.
The level of gravity refers to the amount of sugar present in the wort before it is fermented. Measuring the level of gravity also indicates the brewâ€™s alcohol content. The higher the gravity, the higher the alcohol content.
A contraction of the term "specific gravity," which means the density compared to water as a standard.
"Gravity" is the lead single from Out of Nothing, the fourth album by British band Embrace. Originally written by Chris Martin, the song was first performed live by Coldplay in 2003. Ultimately, Martin gave the song to Embrace.
Gravity is the second album by the New Flamenco artist Jesse Cook.
Gravity is the acclaimed sophomore album from Hip Hop group Da Bush Babees. The crew got help from a number of fellow Native Tongues Posse members, including A Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Q-Tip, Mos Def and De La Soul's Posdnous. The lead single "The Love Song" received pretty strong airplay.
Gravity is a 1980 solo album by English guitarist, composer and improvisor Fred Frith. It was Frith's second solo album and his first since the demise of Henry Cow. It was recorded in Sweden, the United States and Switzerland and featured the Swedish Rock in Opposition group Samla Mammas Manna on one side of the LP record, and the United States group The Muffins on the other side.
The state of having weight; beaviness; as, the gravity of lead.
Weight index of fuels; liquid, petroleum products expressed either as specific, Baume or API (American Petroleum Institute) gravity; weight index of gaseous fuels as specific gravity related to air under specified conditions; or weight index of solid fuels as specific gravity related to water under specified conditions.
Specific gravity. The ratio between equal volumes of water and another liquid, where the weight of the water is given a value of 1. The specific gravity of oil is given as API Gravity.
Relationship of weight per unit volume. For petroleum products, expressed as specific gravity or API gravity in degrees. Specific gravity is the weight of an equal volume of water at a designed temperature. API gravity varies inversely with specif‚ic gravity.
