Density is a measure of the amount of mass in a given amount of space. If you have two rocks of the same size, but one is heavier than the other; then it could be assumed that one is more dense than the other.
Mathematically stated: Density = Mass
Madeup Example : What is the density of a sample of pure iron if it's mass is 34 grams, and a volume of 4 mL?

Convert 4mL to L:
#4mL*# #(1L)/(1000mL)=0.004L# 
Density Iron sample=
#(34 grams)/(0.004L)=8,500(grams)/(Liter)#
