API gravity formulas

The formula used to obtain the API gravity of petroleum liquids is thus:

Conversely, the specific gravity of petroleum liquids can be derived from the API gravity
value as

Thus, a heavy oil with a specific gravity of 1.0 (i.e., with the same density as pure
water at 60°F) would have an API gravity of:

The flash point of a flammable liquid is the lowest temperature at which it can form an ignitable mixture 
in air. 

The pour point of a liquid is the lowest temperature at which it will pour or flow under
prescribed conditions. It is a rough indication of the lowest temperature at which oil is readily
pump able.

Also, the pour point can be defined as the minimum temperature of a liquid, particularly
a lubricant, after which, on decreasing the temperature, the liquid ceases to flow.
