Density is a measure of how much mass is contained in a given unit volume (density = mass/volume). Density is defined as its mass per unit volume. The SI unit of density is kilogram per cubic meter (kg/m^{3}). In other words, density defined in a qualitative manner as the measure of the relative "heaviness" of objects with a constant volume. Density is denoted by the symbol‘d’.
Density is a physical property of matter, as each element and compound has a unique density associated with it. A measure of how much matter is in a certain volume is termed as a density. This advanced online Density Calculation tool is useful in calculating mass (m), volume (v) and density (d).
Example:
Calculate the Density when mass and volume are known.
Mass (m) = 25 kg
Volume (v) = 15 m3
Solution:
Apply Formula:
d = m/v
d = 25/15
d = 1.67 kg/m^{3}
Density (d) = 1.67 kg/m^{3}
