# How would describe the density of an atom's nucleus?

Jan 26, 2017

Well, $\rho , \text{density"="Mass"/"Volume}$

#### Explanation:

For a given atom, we can certainly approach the atomic mass (they are extensively tabulated), and we can even measure the nuclear volume. The density will be very LARGE, given nuclear diameters.

Anyway, this is more the domain of the nuclear phyisicist not the chemist.
