Density is the amount of mass an object has per a unit of volume.
If two objects have the same volume, the object with the higher density will be heavier. For example, the density of gold is 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter and the density of aluminum is 2.7 grams per cubic centimeter. A one cubic centimeter ball of gold would have a mass of 19.3 grams. A one cubic centimeter ball of aluminum would have a mass of 19.3 grams. Obviously, the gold is heavier.
Density is directly proportional to both mass. It is indirectly proportional to volume.
The SI unit of density is kilograms per cubic meter.
Mass is the amount or quantity of matter in an object.
The SI unit of mass is the kilogram.
Volume is the amount of space an object occupies.
The SI unit of volume is the cubic liter.
