# Give a definition of the density of a substance. In what units is it measured?

May 31, 2021 | education

| The density of a substance ρ (ro) is the mass of a substance m taken in a unit of its volume V and is determined by the formula: ρ = m / V.

Since the mass m has a unit of measurement of kilograms (kg), and the volume V is measured in cubic meters (m ^ 3), the density is measured in kg / m ^ 3.

Density ρ = 1 kg / m ^ 3 means that a substance with a volume of 1 m ^ 3 has a mass of 1 kg.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
