Density - Fridge Physics

Density is a measure of how compact the particles are in a substance. Density is defined as the mass per unit volume.

What is Density

Density is a measure of how compact the particles are in a substance. Density is defined as the mass per unit volume. It is mathematically defined as mass divided by volume: ρ = m/V. The density(ρ) of a substance is the total mass (m) of that substance divided by the total volume (V) Of the substance.

Density equation

To calculate Density we use this equation.

${\rho} = {\text{m} \over\text{V}}$
