Density is a property due
to the nature of a particular material. The density of a particular material
is not dependent on the amount of the material examined.
Therefore, density is a characteristic
property. It is a ratio of the mass of an object to its volume. The mathematical
Density is a property that must be computed from
measurements. In the lab, the mass
is usually measured by weighing the material on a balance.
For a liquid, the volume is usually measured using a measuring device called
