Online Density & Mass Capacity Converter

The Free Online Density & Mass Capacity Converter helps you convert one measuring unit of density & mass capacity into another measuring unit. You can convert between grams per cubic centimeter, kilogram per cubic meter, grain per gallon, pound mass per cubic foot, tons per cubic yard, and support many other conversions.

What do you mean by density?

Density is the state or the quality of being dense. More specifically, you say, a crowded condition. But if you talk about the exact definition of the density, it is the object's weight for a specific volume. Or density is the mass of the object divided by its volume.

The formula to calculate the density is

ρ = M/V


  • ρ = density
  • M = mass of the object
  • V = volume of the object

To get the object's density, you must know the object's mass and measure its volume. One exciting thing about the density's formula is that it offers a convenient way to measure the object's mass by its volume, or vice versa.

You can measure the mass of the object by multiplying volume with density.

M = Vρ

Or, you can calculate the volume of the object by dividing the mass by density.

V = M/ρ

Note: The body's weight, which is a more exciting and used term, can be obtained by multiplying the mass with the acceleration due to gravity.

What is the unit to measure the density?

Generally speaking, the water density, which is about 1 gram/cubic centimeter, is taken as the standard value for calculating the density of substances. However, the SI-derived unit kilogram per cubic meter (kg/m³) is used to measure the density.

For convenience, we use the following as well:

  • g/cm³ for solids
  • g/ml for liquids
  • g/L for gases

The other units to measure the density

  • grain per gallon
  • pound mass per cubic foot
  • tons per cubic yard

Why do we need to calculate the density?

The object's density is defined in terms of the object's mass and the volume it takes up. In other words, it shows how heavy a thing is in a constant volume. Therefore, different objects have different densities, even though if they have the same volume.

Density is an essential and fundamental concept in science used to identify rocks and minerals because its density hardly changes. For example,

  • The gold density is 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³).
  • The density of water is 1 gram per cubic centimeter (g/cm³).
  • The air density is 0.001225 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³).
  • The Earth's density is 5.51 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³).

Note: Today, the densest known material, under all modest temperatures and pressures of Earth's surface, is the element osmium. With a density is 22.57 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³).

Many examples of density are there in real life. Significantly, the density of the object will determine whether it will float over other objects or not.

For example, in the hot air balloon, the balloon's density is less than the atmosphere density due to heat. That is why hot air balloons rise. Floating ships on the water and diving a submarine into water is due to different densities. The ocean or lake's water on the surface is warmer than the water at the bottom. That is due to density. The hot water density is slightly less than the cold water. That is why it floats over the cold water.

How to convert grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³) to a kilogram per cubic meter (kg/m³)?

An online density & mass capacity unit converter tool makes the conversion process easy. You can easily convert one measuring unit of density to another measuring unit within no time.

To do this, follow the below-mentioned steps.

  • Open the Online Density & Mass Capacity Unit Converter Tool.
  • Enter the amount 1 in the first column.
  • The second column, "Select from," Grams/cm³ as a measuring unit from which you want to convert.
  • In the third column, "Select to," select Kilogram/cub.meter (kg/m³) as a measuring unit in which you want to convert.
  • Click on the "convert" button; the result will be 1000 Kilogram/cub.meter (kg/m³) within no time.

So 1 Grams/cm³ = 1000 meters Kilogram/cub.meter (kg/m³)

Note: You can adopt the same conversion procedure between grain per gallon, pound mass per cubic foot, tons per cubic yard, etc.
