Steel Density And Other Common Metals
Below is a metal density table for common metals. Density is defined as a object’s mass per volume. To calculate Density, you need to know the object’s Mass (in grams or pounds) and its Volume (size).
The equation for material density is:
is the symbol for Density. The letter “D” is often used.
is the symbol for Mass.
is the symbol for Volume.
1 kg/m3 is equivalent to:
1 g/cm3 = 1000 kg/m3 = 1,000,000 g/m3 (exactly)
1 lb/ft3 ≈ 16.02 kg/m3 (approximately)
1 oz/gal ≈ 7.489 kg/m3 (approximately)
