    denisty is the amount of mass in a given volume of a substance. density=mass/volume \[\rho=m/v\]

    basically it is how much of something in a space. you can think of it like how much things there are in a room. the more things the more compacted and the more dense it is.

    example: if density of a substance = 2kg/m^3 => in each m^3 of this substance there is 2Kg mass

    you assume 1kg of iron and 1kg wool. what is the volume of iron ? what is the volume of wool ? are they same ? \[\rightarrow\] every things have a density . \[\rho\] = m/v
