# Density of Metals

Density of common metals

8

The typical density of common metals can be found listed in the table below.

1. It is really useful for me to recover of memorize. It will helpful for engineering works.

2. 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

3. 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.

4. 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

5. Can the density of a pure metal such as .9999 silver be changed by forging or casting?
