I found it in the Dry Kiln Operator's Manual shortly after I first posted the question. By the way, chapter 1, page 37.

Varies quite a bit from something I had found online from another source.

Manual says tangental 4.5; another online source 6.6

Manual says radial 2.5; another online source 3.7

Manual says specific gravity 0.42; another online source says 0.55
