Default Gravity of Applejuice

Can anybody give me an idea of how to calculate the gravity of juice? What I'm looking at is 100% apple juice with vitamin c

It varies by the amount of sugar in the apples, but it's usually ~1.044ish.

can't you just check it with a hydrometer? If you don't have one I have some apple juice & I could check it if you need?

I usually measure it at 1.050, do you own a hydrometer? pycnometer? digital density meter? one of these three will come in handy...

Yeah when I walked out the door I realized I could just pour some in my hydro tube and measure it. Stupid question. Thanks for the help.
