The most dense pure metal is osmium, Os, with a density of 22.61 g/cm3
Osmium is the densest of the elements. The most dense pure metal is osmium, Os, with a density of 22.61 g/cm3 (that's about twice the density of lead). Other ver…y dense metals are: iridium, Ir, 22.56 g/cm3 platinum, Pt, 21.4 g/cm3 rhenium, Re, 21.0 g/cm3 neptunium, Np, 20.4 g/cm3 plutonium, Pu, 19.8 g/cm3 gold, Au, 19.3 g/cm3 tungsten, W, 19.3 g/cm3 mercury, Hg, 13.53 g/cm3 Lead, Pb, which is usually considered pretty dense, is only 11.4 g/cm3! In case this isn't enough, lead will float on liquid mercury, which has a density of 13.5 g/cm3.
Metals are dense since it is composed of heavily and closely compacted atoms. Its density is based on its atomic weight.
Gold, platinum. Tin and lead are also quite dense. Osmium is the most dense on the periodic table.
The most dense metals have densities of a little over 19 grams per cubic centimeter, Iridium and osmium are rare metals that are the most elements that exist. Gold is on…ly a little less dense than these metals and is probably the most dense metal the majority of people will encounter. Gary Benz Science Teacher American High school Fremont, CA.
lithium has a density of 0.5 g/cm3
The high density of most metals is due to the tightly-packed crystal lattice of the metallic structure Wikipedia.org
Density is a compound's mass divided by its volume. Uranium has alot of neutrons, electrons, ect... but that doesn't mean that it is more dense. Lets say that you have a… fat person and a scrany person, if you can under stand that more dense objects are more likely to sink, then consider this. You have probably seen a fat lady in a swimming pool float casually while the skinny dude has to stroke the water in order to stay afloat or else he would sink. This is an example that fat is less dense than bone or mussel Just because there is more of it, doesn't mean that it has more extreme traits
There are many types of metals. Two of the heaviest are led and mercury.
Osmium i think
dental hygienist and certified nurse assistant are jobs in what career pathway ?
At room temperature the least dense metal is lithium. The most dense element is Osmium
The density is a physical characteristic of all materials.
