Okay so this isn't a homework problem, but with what we are learning, I just would like to know: What does it mean when it says that water has a density of 1??? Thanks

the density of water around room temperature is around 1 g/mL this means that in a volume of 1 mL there is 1 g of water molecules the definition of density is \(\sf density=\dfrac{mass}{volume}\) |dw:1444002022675:dw|

The density of materials changes with temperature, typically, with increasing density as the temperature decreases - a common exception is water, which decreases in density when the temperature decreases and converts to a solid (ice). Watch this video if you want more on density
