The mean density look-up equation provides the mean density for a large number of substances.
INSTRUCTIONS:

• Click on the pull-down menu and scroll through the alphabetical list to find the substance you wish.

The mean density is returned in kilograms per cubic meter.  However, this can be automatically converted to other density units via the pull-down menu.  The other density units include the following:

• kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m3)
• pounds per cubic foot (lb/ft3)
• metric tons per cubic meter (t/m3)
• U.S. tons per cubic yard (tn/yd3)
• ounces per cubic inch (oz/in3)

### Uses of Mean Density

With the mean density (μD) of an object, one can compute the mass of the object via the following equation:

mass = μD • volume

## Substances

The list of substances and their mean densities have been compiled from a large number of public sources.  The substances include the following:
