Density (Specific Gravity) Of Various Substances
Density, mass of a unit volume of a material substance. The formula for density is (d = M/V), where d is density, M is mass, and V is volume. D is commonly expressed in units of grams per cubic centimetre.
Mass -Mass is both a property of a physical body and a measure of its resistance to acceleration (a change in its state of motion) when a net force is applied. An object’s mass also determines the strength of its gravitational attraction to other bodies.
