QUESTION

# What units is density measured in?

The SI unit for density is "kg""/""m"^3 or kilograms per meters cubed. Density, however, can be measured in a wide variety of units, like "g/cm"^3 or "g/ml".

is measured as "mass"/"volume"

The SI unit for density is "kg""/""m"^3 or kilograms per meters cubed. Density, however, can be measured in a wide variety of units, like "g/cm"^3 or "g/ml".

Density = Mass/Volume. The units for density are grams per cubic centimeter ( "g/cm"^3** ) or grams per milliliter ( "g/ml" ), since a cubic centimeter is equivalent to a milliliter.

For example, water has a density of "1 g/ml" or "1 g/cm"^3. What this means is that for every 1 gram of what you have, it takes up 1 milliliter of space (or 1 cubic centimeter).

If you were to put 1 milliliter of water in a test tube and find its mass, it would be exactly 1 gram.

If something has a density of "9 g/ml", that means that for every 9 grams of the substance, it takes up 1 milliliter of space.

The units are what they are due to the equation. Mass = grams = "g". Volume = milliliters = "ml" or cubic centimeters = "cm"^3. When you divide grams by milliliters (or "cm"^3), you get "g/ml" (or "g/cm"^3).
