Density and specific gravity are both used to describe mass and can be used to compare substances. However, they are not identical measures.
The words ‘taken to have the value’ are important here, as the value of maximum density cannot be known exactly (nor, for that matter, can the temperature of 4 °C be realised exactly).
What are g-forces and are they caused by gravity?
