  1. dear all, are you sure that the units of the pressure mentioned here are kg/m3.
    I read in other websites that its is g/cm3. so there should be a factor 1000 added here?
    thanks

  2. The table has an error; gold and tungsten are essentially the same density. They are so similar that a gold-plated tungsten bar would be indistinguishable from a solid gold bar, unless someone were to drill into it, where the hardness of tungsten would immediately indicate it is a fake gold bar.

  3. Yes, Jamila it is measured in g/cm³. The were been converted to kilo meaning it was multipled by 10³. For you to convert it to cm just divided the value by 10². Example Iron it was written as 7860kg/m³, simply divide 7860 by 10² =78.6g/cm³
