Enter the mass of compound 1 (kg), the mass of compound 2 (kg), and the total volume of composite (m^3) into the Composite Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Composite Density. 

Composite Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Composite Density. 

CD = (m1+m2) / V

  • Where CD is the Composite Density (kg/m^3)
  • m1 is the mass of compound 1 (kg) 
  • m2 is the mass of compound 2 (kg) 
  • V is the total volume of composite (m^3) 

How to Calculate Composite Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Composite Density.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the mass of compound 1 (kg).
    1. The mass of compound 1 (kg) is given as 5.
  2. Next, determine the mass of compound 2 (kg). 
    1. The mass of compound 2 (kg) is calculated as: 10.
  3. Next, determine the total volume of composite (m^3). 
    1. The total volume of composite (m^3) is found to be: 2.
  4. Finally, calculate the Composite Density using the formula above: 

CD = (m1+m2) / V

Inserting the values from above yields: 

CD = (5+10) / 2 = 7.5 (kg/m^3)


Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

mass of compound 1 (kg) = 5

mass of compound 2 (kg) = 93

total volume of composite (m^3) = 10

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

CD = (m1+m2) / V = (kg/m^3)
