A kilogram of feathers or a kilogram of iron? DENSITY
GEL2007 What is Density?
What If you take the same volume of different substances, then they will weigh different amounts.
Wood Water Iron 1 cm3 1 cm3 1 cm3 0.50 g 1.00 g 8.00 g IRON Q) Which has the greatest mass and therefore the most dense? Density is the Mass per unit Volume Density Equation:
g or kg Density = Mass
Volume m gcm3 or kgm3
cm3 or kg3 ρ = m V
