Actually, if you have an accurate graduated cylinder, you can measure the displacement of the volume of water and calculate it at 1 gram per millimeter which is also a cubic centimeter of water. Actually, I have the means to do that. Scale and graduated cylinders. Also three presumably different coal brands on hand. No name, Kimmle's and Blaschak. If I'm really bored tonight. I'll dry samples in a low oven and do the calculations. :D Just for giggles and to extend this thread to 9 pages! toothy
Then Fred will have to come west and visit both of us!!! :shock:

Or would that be south???
No matter where you go,......there you are.

If your anthracite coal has a grayish color or the majority of your delivered coal has a grayish color. It is Upper Bench coal, which is a denser, heavier coal. The true hard coal, very hard. Burns fine. Alot of breakers that run Magnetite actually loose a large majority of this coal because of being so dense.

It is the element that we add to water to raise the specific gravity to float the coal off of jack stone and vessel rock.
