Medical Term:

vapor density


Definition: the mass per unit volume of a vapor; because the vapor density changes with temperature and pressure, it is commonly expressed as a specific gravity, the weight of the vapor divided by the weight of an equal volume of a reference gas (oxygen or hydrogen) at the same temperature and pressure.
