The exact relationship is density = mass or weight divided by volume. Different materials have different densities. For example, the mass density of gold is 19.3 g/cc, lead is 11.4 g/cc, copper is 9.0 g/cc, aluminum is 2.7 g/cc, water is 1.0 g/cc (1g/cc = 1 gram per cubic centimeter).

## Does gold have high density

The density of most gold is 19.3-3 g/cm or depends on its atomic size and crystallization rules. This makes gold quite heavy compared to some other common materials. For example, the density of aluminum is 2.7-3 gcm, and then the density of steel is mainly 7.87 gcm-3. Pure gold has a special melting point of 1064°C.

## How do you measure the density of gold

Weigh it on a kitchen scale, perhaps a body weight scale if the idea is too complicated.
Measure the business volume of a “gold nugget” by dropping it into rainwater of a known volume with precise graduations.
Divide by #1 #2 to get the highest density.

## Is gold more dense than silver

Uranium metal has a very high density of 19.1 g/cm 3 , denser than lead (11 g/cm 3 ) but slightly less dense than tungsten and gold (19.3 g/cm 3 ). Is pure silver hard? The pure yellow metal is quite soft and difficult to shape, making it difficult to use for items that often require daily use or specific shapes and sizes.

## Is gold high density

Gold is known to be very good (density 19.32 at room temperature, almost higher than silver), but as the detailed table shows, some of the neighboring Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) are significantly denser.

## What is gold’s density g cm3

Density of gold: 19.320 g/cm3.

## What is gold’s density in Kg m3

As the equation shows, the density of gold is typically 19,300 kg/m3.
