What is the formula for calculating density and what does each letter stand for in the formula?
Density is defined as the ratio of Mass to Volume.
Water for example has a defined value of 1 gram/ l ml (or
or a density of 1
To make this more clear multiply both g/1 and g/ml times
the reciprocal of g/ml which is mi/g
The first term on the top reduces to just ml
The second term on the bottom reduces to 1
leaving ml or Volume as the answer.
