### Does copper have a high density?

That is because copper has a higher density than aluminium. Density is the mass per unit volume of a substance. For copper ρ = 8940 ( kg m-3). For aluminium ρ = 2700 (kg m-3).

#### Which matter has highest density?

Solid is of highest density due to its close packing of molecules inside a substance there is no space between the molecules and they are closely and linearly arranged inside the given surface.

**Which metal is used in density?**

Known density of selected metals and alloys

Metal or alloy | Density (g/cm3) |
---|---|

Zinc | 7.13 |

Iron (grey cast) | 7.20 |

Tin | 7.30 |

Steel (carbon) | 7.86 |

**Is steel or copper stronger?**

Steel is stronger than copper and can bear more fatigue. Copper exists naturally, as it is an element, whereas steel is an alloy. 2. Although Steel is stronger but Copper is heavier than steel, and both can corrode in a moist environment.

## Is steel or copper more expensive?

Copper is often more expensive than that of stainless steel.. This may sometimes change based on the current market value, but you should expect to pay on avergage about 25% more for copper. Maintenace of copper is a bit more time consuming if you want to maintain its finish.

### How do you calculate the density of copper?

The density of copper is 8.92 grams per milliliter. To determine the density of your object, weigh it then divide that weight by its volume. If the density of your object is significantly different from the density of copper, your object is not pure copper.

#### What is the density formula of copper?

The density equation is D= M V, where D is density, M is mass, and V is volume. The mass of copper is 400 g. The volume is 1.5 mL, which is equal to 1.5 cm3. This is because 1 mL = 1 cm3.

**What is cu on the periodic table?**

Copper is a chemical element and it is a member of group 11 and period 4 in the periodic table. The atomic number of copper is 29 and it is indicated by the symbol Cu. Cu is a soft, malleable and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity.

**What is the volume of copper?**

The volume of a single copper atom is 8.74×10-24 cm3.
