Short-Question

# What is the unit used for density of a liquid?

## What is the unit used for density of a liquid?

Density is calculated by the dividing the mass by the volume, so that density is measured as units of mass/volume, often g/mL.

How is the density of a liquid expressed?

Density is a physical property of liquids and solids. The density of liquids and solids is usually expressed in grams per milliliter (g/mL) or grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3). Since 1 mL = 1 cm3, the numerical value for density in g/mL and g/cm3 is identical.

Which units are most often used for the density of a liquid?

Density can be expressed in any combination of mass and volume units; the most commonly seen units are grams per mL (g mL–1, g cm–3), or kilograms per liter.

### What are the units for density of a liquid or gas?

The SI unit of kilogram per cubic metre (kg/m3) and the cgs unit of gram per cubic centimetre (g/cm3) are probably the most commonly used units for density.

What is the density of solid and liquid?

Liquids and gases

State Distance between particles Density in g/cm 3
Solid Very close together Solid iron = 7.8
Liquid Slightly further apart than a solid Liquid iron = 6.9
Gas Very much further apart than a solid or liquid Oxygen gas = 0.0014

Is the unit for density base or derived?

Density is a derived unit because it’s not reported as a pure unit. (A pure unit would be something like kilograms or meters.)

## What is the unit of density which are the basic units involved in it?

Density is commonly expressed in units of grams per cubic centimetre. For example, the density of water is 1 gram per cubic centimetre, and Earth’s density is 5.51 grams per cubic centimetre. Density can also be expressed as kilograms per cubic metre (in metre-kilogram-second or SI units).

Which of the following is the SI unit of density?

So, we have found that the SI unit of density is kilogram per cubic metre.
