🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Rose's class at SHSU.
Density is defined as the mass of a substance contained per unit volume. In simpler words, density is a characteristic property of matter that defines how heavy or light it is. Heavier substances have greater densities than lighter substances.
The formula for density is:
Note that we need our density value in the units of g/cm3. So, we will be following these steps:
So, let’s begin.
A 40-lb container of peat moss measures 14 x 20 x 30 in. A 40-lb container of topsoil has a volume of 1.9 gal.
Calculate the average density of peat moss in units of g/cm3.
