The formula for density is the mass of an object divided by its volume. In equation form, that’s **d = m/v** , where d is the density, m is the mass and v is the volume of the object.

## How do you get volume from density?

**Divide the mass by the density of the substance** to determine the volume (mass/density = volume). Remember to keep the units of measure consistent. For example, if the density is given in grams per cubic centimeter, then measure the mass in grams and give the volume in cubic centimeters.

## How do you convert volume to mass?

Volume equals **mass divided by density**; and. Mass equals density times volume.

## What does volume do to density?

If volume increases without an increase in mass, then **the density decreases** (Fig. 2.2 A to 2.2 C). Adding additional matter to the same volume also increases density, even if the matter added is a different type of matter (Fig. 2.2 A to 2.2 D).

## How do you convert density to specific volume?

The specific volume is the reciprocal of the density of the material, which is the mass per unit volume: **r = (1/v) = (m/V)**.

## What is the formula of volume?

Table 3. Volume Formulas | ||
---|---|---|

Shape | Formula | Variables |

Cube | V=s3 | s is the length of the side. |

Right Rectangular Prism | V=LWH |
L is the length, W is the width and H is the height. |

Prism or Cylinder | V=Ah | A is the area of the base, h is the height. |

## How do I find the volume?

Whereas the basic formula for the area of a rectangular shape is length × width, the basic formula for volume is **length × width × height.**

## What happens to density when volume increases?

If volume increases without an increase in mass, then the density decreases (Fig. 2.2 A to 2.2 C). **Adding additional matter to the same volume also increases** density, even if the matter added is a different type of matter (Fig.

## Does higher density mean higher volume?

Density = Mass/Volume, which means that density is how heavy an object is compared to its size – so how closely its molecules are “packed” together. … **It has a higher density**. Density = Mass/Volume also means that the larger the volume of an object compared to its mass, the less dense it is.

## What is the relationship between volume and mass?

As the **volume of the material increases**, the mass will also increase. The greater the volume of the object the greater the number of atoms present. This will result in the object having greater mass.

## Is specific volume the density?

The specific volume is **the reciprocal of the density of the material**, which is the mass per unit volume: r = (1/v) = (m/V). The “Specific Gravity” of a substance is the ratio of its mass to that of an equal volume of water at the same temperature and pressure.

## What is specific volume unit?

Specific volume is a property of materials, defined as the number of cubic meters occupied by one kilogram of a particular substance. The standard unit is the **meter cubed per kilogram** (m^{3}/kg or m^{3}·kg^{−}^{1}).

## What is force of gravity per unit volume?

The force density, or force per unit volume, f, is the net force (F) on a region of matter divided by the volume (V) that contains it: **f = F/V**. If the force is in Newtons (N) and the volume is in cubic meters, f has units N/m^3.

## What is the volume of a square?

The volume of a square box is equal to the cube of the length of the side of the square box. The formula for the volume is **V = s ^{3}**, where “s” is the length of the side of the square box.

## What is the volume of this cylinder?

The formula for the volume of a cylinder is **V=Bh** or V=πr2h . The radius of the cylinder is 8 cm and the height is 15 cm. Substitute 8 for r and 15 for h in the formula V=πr2h .

## How do we calculate area?

The area is measurement of the surface of a shape. To find the area of a rectangle or a square you need **to multiply the length and the width of a rectangle or a square**. Area, A, is x times y.
