Compared to Earth, the atmosphere on Mars barely exists. The average air pressure on thesurface of Mars is about 600 pascals (0.6 kilopascals). That sounds like a big number, but it's actually less than 1% the air density of Earth. So there's very little air pressure.

Furthermore, the composition of the atmosphere on Mars is 95% carbon dioxide, 3% nitrogen, 1.6% argon and then trace amounts of oxygen and water vapor. And carbon dioxide is absolutely something you can't survive on. You need more than trace amounts of oxygen, you need the same levels we have here on Earth to breathe.

What is the density of mars compared to earth?

Pure water has a density of 1.0. Earth has an overall average density of 5.52, while Mars has an average density of 3.93.By contrast, iron has a density of 7.87, while gold has a density of 19.32. So we can assume that heavy metals are relatively more scarce on Mars than on the Earth.

When you compare the density of water or air with another object how can you tell which has the lower or higher density?

-- If the object floats in water, then its density is less than the density of water. -- If the object sinks in water, then its density is more than the density of water. -- If the object floats in air, then its density is less than the density of air. -- If the object sinks in air, then its density is less than the density of air.


Would Mars float on water?

No, the density of Mars is 3.9335 g/cm³ (the density of water is 1.00 g/cm3), therefore Mars would sink. The planet that would float in water is the planet Saturn which has a density of 0.687 g/cm3.
