Enter the total gold weight (grams) and the total gold volume (in^3) into the Gold Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Gold Density. 

Gold Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Gold Density. 

GD = GW / GV
  • Where GD is the Gold Density (grams/in^3)
  • GW is the total gold weight (grams) 
  • GV is the total gold volume (in^3) 

To calculate the gold density, divide the total gold weight by the volume.

How to Calculate Gold Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Gold Density.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total gold weight (grams).
    1. The total gold weight (grams) is given as: 10.
  2. Next, determine the total gold volume (in^3).
    1. The total gold volume (in^3) is provided as: 5.
  3. Finally, calculate the Gold Density using the equation above: 

GD = GW / GV

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

GD = 10 / 5 = 2 (grams/in^3)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total gold weight (grams) = 520

total gold volume (in^3) = 50

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

GD = GW / GV = ?
