How are Metal Densities Defined

Metal density is the measurement of the quantity of mass occupied by a specific metal in a particular volume. It is generally given in kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m³) or grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³). These are some common examples of various metal densities

  • The Density of Aluminum is 2.7 g/cm³
  • The Density of Magnesium is 1.74 g/cm³
  • The Density of Titanium is 4.5 g/cm³
  • The Density of Iron is 7.8 g/cm³
  • The Density of Copper is 8.9 g/cm³
  • The Density of Silver is 10.5 g/cm³
  • The Density of Gold is 19.3 g/cm³
  • The Density of Lead is 11.3 g/cm³
  • The Density of Platinum is 21.5 g/cm³
  • The Density of Tungsten is 19.3 g/cm³
  • The Density of Osmium is 22.6 g/cm³

These examples signify a range of metal densities, where lighter metals like magnesium and aluminum have low viscosity and heavy metals such as tungsten and osmium have high density

Unit Conversion For Metal Densities

To convert metal densities from g/cm3 (grams per cubic centimeters) to kg/m3 (kilograms per cubic meter). Let’s say the density of the given metal is 2.6 g/cm3 so the value in kg/m3 shall be

"X" kg/m3 = "X" g/cm3 x 1000

= 2.6 g/cm3 x 1000

= 2600 kg/m3

To convert metal densities from kg/m3 (kilograms per cubic meter) to g/cm3 (grams per cubic centimeter). Let’s say the density of given metal is 2700 kg/m3 so the value in g/cm3 shall be

"X" g/cm3 = "X" kg/m3 / 1000

= 2600 kg/m3 / 1000

= 2.6 g/cm3

Conversion of Metal densities

To convert metal densities from g/cm³ to lb/ft³. Multiply the density in g/cm³ by 62.43 to obtain the density in lb/ft³.

"X" lb/ft3 = "X" g/cm3 x 62.43

= 2.6 g/cm3 x 62.43

= 162.318 lb/ft3

To convert metal densities from kg/m³ to lb/ft³. Multiply the density in kg/m³ by 0.06243 to obtain the density in lb/ft³.

"X" lb/ft3 = "X" kg/m3 x 0.06243

= 2600 kg/m3 x 0.06243

= 162.318 lb/ft3
