specific weight

The specific weight (also known as the unit weight) is the weight per unit volume of a material. The symbol of specific weight is γ (the Greek letter Gamma).

A commonly used value is the specific weight of water on Earth at 5°C which is 62.43 lbf/ft3 or 9.807 kN/m3.

The terms specific gravity, and less often specific weight, are also used for relative density. Specific Weight, Wikipedia (external link)
