# Density Calculator

**Density calculates the mass of a body contained in a unit volume**. It is a quantitative term that measures the heaviness of a body or object. It explains how much **mass a substance holds per single unit of volume**. It is a physical property of matter, which is unique to every element in the world. Each and every matter in this universe has a different code for its density.

It is donated by p. According to the System International (SI) units, the unit of mass is “kg” and the unit of volume is “m^{3}” so the unit of density will be kg/m^{3}

## Formula of Density Calculator

Its general formula is depicted from its definition i.e.,

p = m / v

**Where,**

ρ = density

m = mass

v = volume

You can also make variations using this formula i.e.,

To find Mass

m = pv

To find Volume

v = m/d

So density can be helpful in finding the mass of the object or the volume it occupies.

**Note:**

To calculate the volume of a cylinder, you can use our Cylinder Volume Calculator.

### Example

If you have an object that has a mass of 25 kg, and it occupies a volume of 15 m^{3}. What will be the density?

**Given data**

mass = 25 kg

volume = 15 m^{3}

**To Find**

density = ?

**Solution**

To solve the above problem, we will use the formula listed below:

p = m / v

Putting values in the above equation

p = 25 / 15

p = 1.67 kg/m^{3}.

Here we get the density of that object.
