What is the DENSITY of ss420 steel?
The density of ss 420 steel is 7.74g/cm3 (AK Steel).
7.85g/cm3 Answer: The density of plain mild steel is often stated to be 7.85. Alternately density of 7.88 may be quoted for mild steel. The grade of steel that you are talking about can change this value. Alloying elements such as tungsten, chrome or manganese changes the density. So the density of steel can vary from 7.75 and 8.05.
Depending on where you look, or the grade of steel that you are talking about can change this value. A density of 7.88 is often quoted for mild steel. If you add alloying elements such as tungsten, chrome or manganese to improve the steel, the density will change. So, the density of steel can vary between 7.75 and 8.05."
The density of steel varies depending on the alloy. (Steel itself is basically an alloy of iron and carbon.) Mild steel has a density of about 7.75 g/cc at room temperature and around 7.00g/cc in liquid state(Most studies reveal that the density of steel in liquid is about 90% than in solid state). The "world" of steel is a large one, and a variation will be encountered when investigating different alloys.
