In response to the many folks discussing Specific Gravity and "dead volume"
"Dead volume" brings to my mind the Thermosphere around the earth about 50 miles up.
It's strange up there where the temperature increases with altitude (up to 4000 degrees F).
You would think that is hot enough to melt many things, yet a simple thermometer reads way below 0 degrees.
That is because the air is so rare it can't transfer enough energy to "heat" that thermometer.
Now that's dead volume.
