Distinguish between the heaviness of a material and its density?

The heaviness of a material is determined by the product of the  mass of an object and the force of gravity. The density of an  object is determined by the ratio of its mass

What source material are tables and chairs made from?

The vast majority of tables are made of wood, also known as lumber. Modern furniture may use metal nails or the traditional construction, with or without glues. Chairs often i

Which is the material with highest density?

Iridium wins when the density is calculated using the "space lattice" method, which is considered to be more accurate, when comparing it to Osmium. An atom of Iridium has 77 p

What is the difference between material density optical density?

Material density is "regular" density. Take lead. It is heavy for a small volume of it; it's pretty dense. Water? Not so much. Lead sinks in it. Wood, however, floats on water

Difference between density and relative density?

Hi there Density is the ratio of an object's mass divided by its volume. Relative density is the ratio of density of a substance to the density of water, which is 1kg/1 is th

Do materials with high density float or sink?

This depends on what the material is floating or sinking in. If an object in water that has a higher density than water will sink, but if it has a lower density it will floa

What is the difference between Apparent Density Density?

In metallurgy it is the weight per unit volume of a metal powder, in contrast to the weight per unit volume of the individual particles.    In architecture the apparent

What does the density of a material depend on?

The density of a material depends on the mass and the volume of that material. In order to find the density of a material you must multiple the mass of the material and the vo

Difference between linear density and density?

Linear Density refers to the mass per unit length of a  one-dimensional object (e.g. guitar strings) while density refers  to any object and indicates how dense or solid som

How does density increase on the periodic table?

Density increases down a group on the periodic table. The trend is  more complex across a period. Metals are generally more dense than  nonmetals, but among metals on a peri
