# What is the formula for calculating density?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 11/20/2017

== == D equals m divided by V where D stands for Density, m
stands for mass, and V stands for Volume. D=m/v

As density is defined as mass per unit volume, therefore :

d = m/v ,where d = density ; m = mass ; v = volume

The greater the density , the more is the mass per unit
volume.

The density formula calculate using the **formula p=m/v, or
density** (p) is equal to mass(m) divided by volume (V)
