## Density Calculator

Calculate the density of an object or a substance, where density is the mass per unit of volume. With this density calculator, you can find any of the three variables in the density equation by providing the other two.

Density:

✦ If volume ‘V’ and mass ‘M’ are given

Volume:

✦ If density ‘D’ and mass ‘M’ are given

Mass:

✦ If volume ‘V’ and density ‘D’ are given

## Density (ρ) Formula:

The density formula is as follows:

ρ = M V

Density determines how much mass is closely packed together in a given unit of volume. When two objects have the same volume, the denser one will have more mass than the other one.

### Common Density (ρ) Units

As the density is a scalar quantity and the SI unit of density is kg/m³. But in the case of solid, we use g/cm³ for convenience to indicate density, while liquid and gases are determined in g/ml and g/L respectively. However, other units are given below:

 Other Units Conversion of Various Units of Density to the SI unit kg/m³ Gram per cubic centimeter = 1000 kilograms per cubic meter Gram per cubic meter 0.001 Kilogram per liter 1000 Gram per liter 1 Pound per cubic inch 27,680 Pound per cubic foot 16.02 Pound per cubic yard 0.5933 Pound per gallon (US) 119.83 Pound per gallon (UK) 99.78 Ounce per cubic inch 1,730 Ounce per cubic foot 1.001 Ounce per gallon (US) 7.489 Ounce per gallon (UK) 6.236 Ton (short) per cubic yard 1,186.60 Ton (long) per cubic yard 1,328.90

## Example:

• Gold is a dense metal, which is why it's so valuable
• Styrofoam is a very low-density material that is used for insulation
• Gasoline is less dense than water, therefore in oil spills it floats on the top of water
• Air is less dense than most solids and liquids
• Ice is less dense than the water due to why ice floats on above surface of water

## What are Applications of Density Calculator?

### Everyday Applications:

• Cooking: You can calculate the amount of ingredients when it come for cooking
• Jewellery: Find the value of precious metals based on density and weight

### Scientific Applications:

• Chemistry: You can determine the concentration of a solution by studying the properties of a material
• Physics: Calculate the mass or volume of an object and know the behaviour of fluids

### Engineering Applications:

• Civil Engineering: To ensure that the designing structures can withstand the weight of material
• Mechanical Engineering: It finds the density of various materials to select the right one based on weight and strength
