# Whatis the unit for density in physics?

### 6 Answers | Add Yours

Density is always = mass/volume, or mass per unit volume. As for what units, that all depends upon what the items are. The more standard ones, I believe, are kg/cm3 and lbs/in3. But, there are no "set" units. It will always be mass/volume. But, the units can change.

Kg/ centimeter cube

kg/milliliter cube

The SI unit for density is

**kg/cm^3**

**or **

**kg/mL^3**

A centimeter cubed is equal to a mL cubed.

kg/ cm^3 or kg/ mL^3

The SI unit for density is kilogram per cubic meter (kg/m3

The * SI Unit (Standard International)* unit for density is

** • kg/ cm^3**

or

** • kg/ mL^3**

Although, these units can *vary* due to what is mass and volume's units because of the density formula.

**D = M/ V**
