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 »

In English units, the density of water is 1.936 slugs per cubic foot. A slug is different from a pound because the slug measures the mass of a unit, but a pound measures the force of the unit in relation to gravity. 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 »

Nickel is a solid metal element at room temperature and has a density of 8.912 grams per cubic centimeter. It is also a hard metal and has good corrosion resistance, which is why it is alloyed with other metals to improv... More »
