**Formula used**
$\rho=\frac {m}{V}$

## What is Density

- Density is an important property of any material. Density is defined as mass per unit volume. We use Greek letter $\rho$ (rho) for density.
- if m is the mass of homogeneous material of volume V then. The density $\rho$ would be given by
$\rho = \frac {mass}{Volume} = \frac {m}{v}$
- Density is a positive scalar quantity
- SI unit of Density is $Kg/m^3$. CGS unit of density is $g/cm^3$

__Some Unit conversions__
$1 \ m^3 = 10^3 \ L$

$1 \ m^3 = 10^6 \ cm^3$

$ 1 \ L= 10^3 \ cm^3$

**Example of Few questions where you can use this Density Calculator**

**Question 1**

A Body of mass 4 kg have volume $10 m^3$.Find the Density ?

**Answer**

Given , m= 4 kg, V=$10 m^3$, $\rho$ =?

Density is given by

$\rho = \frac {mass}{Volume} = \frac {m}{V}$

$\rho = \frac {4}{10} =.4 \ Kg/m^3$

**Question 2**

A object has density as $10 \ kg/m^3$. The volume is $3 \ m^3$. Find the mass of the body.

**Answer**

Given , m= ?, V=$3 m^3$, $\rho=10 \ kg/m^3$

Density is given by

$\rho = \frac {mass}{Volume} = \frac {m}{V}$

Rearranging this
$m = \rho \times V = 10 \times 3 = 30 \ kg $

**Question 3**

A object has density as $20 \ kg/m^3$. The mass is 2 kg. Find the Volume.

**Answer**

Given , m= 2 kg, V=?, $\rho=20 \ kg/m^3$

Density is given by

$\rho = \frac {mass}{Volume} = \frac {m}{V}$

Rearranging this
$V = \frac {m}{\rho} = \frac {2}{20} = .1 \ m^3 $

## How the Density Calculator works

1. If mass and volume given

$\rho =\frac {m}{V}$

2. If mass and density are given

$V= \frac {m}{ \rho}$

3. If volume and density are given

$m = \rho \times V$
