Why are metals more dense than non-metals?

Metals have a tightly packed crystal lattice structure. Their nuclei tend to be more massive and can be more tightly packed due to their electrons being delocalized.

What is the most dense element?

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 very dens

What metals are less dense than water?

  Potassium and Lithium   Those two have densities less than water. Potassium has a specific gravity (or relative density) of 0.87. Lithium has an SG of about 0.53.

What mineral is most dense?

The answer is either platinum or chengdeite depending on who you believe. Meaning, chengdeite has a specific gravity listed at various places as between 19 and 20, whereas oth

What are dense metals used for?

Dense metals tend to be used for things such as bullets. Commonly lead is used in bullets because it is once of the denser metals.

Why is Earth the most dense planet?

Earth is not the most dense planet. The density of Earth is only 5.515 g/cm3 , butthe density of planet Kepler-70b (in the Cygnus constellation) is 64 g/cm3 ! See Sources and
