The lightest metal in the Periodic Table is lithium (Li) with atomic number 3 density 0.53 kg/L.

However, the metal with the highest strength to weight ratio is titanium (Ti).

Lithium metal is extremely soft (and highly reactive) and so is unusable for many applications, but one atom of Li weighs 1/7th of an atom of Ti.
