The density of water at standard temperature and pressure is 1 gram per centimeter cubed. The density of pure water is slightly less. Density is defined as the mass per unit volume of a substance. More »

Adding salt to water increases the density of the whole solution. As a result, the solution has a lower freezing point, as the example of seawater shows. On average, seawater has approximately 3.5 percent salinity, and i... More »

When water is at room temperature, its density is 998.23 kg/m3, which is only slightly less than the normal density of water at exactly 1000 kg/m3. The density of water is dependent on the temperature. More »

Global winds help to distribute heat and water vapor around the Earth, which influences temperature and precipitation patterns around the entire globe. Global winds are caused by pressure differences in the atmosphere fr... More »

Bodies of water heat up and cool down at a slower pace than land because they need more energy from the sun to gain a higher temperature. They are typically colder later into the season and warmer than nearby land masses... More »

An ocean's salinity is affected by water and air temperature, the volume of water that flows into it, its age and the chemical composition of surrounding geological formations. Because the effect of these factors varies ... More »

When measured at standard temperature and pressure conditions, the density of benzene is 0.876 grams per cubic centimeter, or 873.8 kilograms per cubic meter. Density is calculated by dividing the mass of the benzene by ... More »
