## anonymous 4 years ago Can someone give me a simple easy to understand definition of density?

1. anonymous

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

2. anonymous

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.

3. hoblos

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

density is mass per unit volume .

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
