Volume V Density

Postby Andrea- 3J » Thu Apr 12, 2018 10:45 pm

Can someone explain the differences between volume and density?

Volume is the amount of space a substance takes up. On the other hand, the density is the mass of an object divided by the object's volume.

Volume: Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space occupied by a liquid, solid, or gas. Common units used to express volume include liters, cubic meters, gallons, milliliters, teaspoons and ounces.

Density: Density is defined as the ratio between mass and volume or mass per unit volume. It is a measure of how much stuff an object has in a unit volume (cubic meter or cubic centimeter).

You need to know the volume of an object to calculate its density. For example, let's say there are two balls with equal mass. However, their volumes differ: one ball has a radius of 5 cm and the other has a radius of 1 cm. Following the density equation (D = m/V), we know that the larger ball is less dense than the smaller ball, despite them having equal mass.

Volume is the amount of space something takes up, while density is the amount of mass per unit within that volume.

As said, volume measures space in an object while density measures amount of matter in that object.
