Enter the metal mass (kg) and the metal volume (m^3) into the Metal Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Metal Density. 

Metal Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Metal Density. 

Dm = MM / mV

  • Where Dm is the Metal Density (kg/m^3)
  • MM is the metal mass (kg) 
  • mV is the metal volume (m^3) 

How to Calculate Metal Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Metal Density.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the metal mass (kg). 
    1. The metal mass (kg) is given as: 65.
  2. Next, determine the metal volume (m^3). 
    1. The metal volume (m^3) is provided as: 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the Metal Density using the equation above: 

Dm = MM / mV

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Dm = 65 / 10 = 6.5 (kg/m^3)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

metal mass (kg) = 77

metal volume (m^3) = 23

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

Dm = MM / mV = ?
