    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the specific gravity of rock for erosion control. This test method can be used for all types of materials, both naturally occurring or manmade.

    1.2 This is a field test method to measure apparent specific gravity. For laboratory determination of bulk specific gravity see Test Methods C97.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
