The air density calculator instantly calculates the density of air in kg m3 at a certain temperature and pressure. Not only this, but the tool also calculates the dew point, air pressure, and water vapor pressure when the air is fully compressed.

Here’s how you can use our density of air calculator:

**Input:**

- Enter the air pressure
- Select the air temperature
- Choose the Air type
- Enter Relative humidity of air
- Hit the calculate button to find the air density

**Output:**

This density air calculator estimates the following calculations:

- Air density
- Dew point of air
- Pressure of the dry air
- Water vapor pressure

You can calculate the air density using the following equation:

**ρ = [(Pd / (Rd * T)) + (Pv / (Rv * T))]**

where:

**Pd**= Pressure of dry air**Pv**= Water vapor pressure**T**= Temperature in Kelvins**Rd**= Specific gas constant for dry air [287.058 J/(kg·K)]**Rv**= Specific gas constant for water [461.495 J/(kg·K)]

If we set the temperature at 15 °C & pressure at 1013.25 hPa, the air density will be 1.225 kg/(m^3). At sea level, the atmospheric pressure is maximized due to high air pressure. Hence the air is denser at sea level and we can figure this out by the air density calculator.

The density of the air is denoted by the Greek letter Rho (ρ) and it is the measure of the mass per unit volume and this is why we represent the density of air in kg m3 or g/m3.

If you are thinking about how to calculate density of air, then you need some basic weather parameters like pressure and temperature.

Air pressure is a force exerted on a surface by the air above it as gravity pulls it to Earth. The air pressure is commonly measured with a barometer or in Pascals.

The standard SI unit of pressure is Pascal and the other units are expressed as follows:

- Pascals (Pa)
- Standard Atmospheres (ATM)
- Tor (Torr)
- bar (bar)
- Pounds per Square Inch (psi or lb/in2)
- Technical Atmosphere (at or kgf/cm2)
- Barad (Ba)
- Pièze (ps)

The basic units of temperature are Kelvin (K), centigrade or Celsius (C), and Fahrenheit (F). You need to convert the Fahrenheit to Celsius and Kelvin to calculate air density.

The dew point is the temperature at which the water vapor starts to condense. You can compute the dew point manually or our air density calculator is able to use one of these values to compute the other.

Here, you can find the density of air in lb/ft3.

Density of air | Pressure | Density of air lb/ft3 |
---|---|---|

Density of air at 15 C | 1 Pascal | 0.00000075474 |

Density of air at 20 C | 1 Pascal | 0.00000074187 |

Density of air at 22 C | 1 Pascal | 0.00000073684 |

Density of air at 25 C | 1 Pascal | 0.00000072943 |

Density of air at 40 C | 1 Pascal | 0.00000069449 |

We can calculate the air-density in various units like [lbm/ft3], [sl/ft3*10-3] , [lbm/gal(US liq)], [kg/m3]. Now if you think about how to calculate the density of air in the above-mentioned units then the following table can be of great help.

In this table, we have distinguished the specific weight and thermal expansion coefficient at various temperatures.

Temperature | Pressure | Specific weight | Thermal expansion coefficient | ||||
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
