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 »

The density of salt water is 1.025, making it heavier than freshwater. Because of this, if the two types of water are mixed, the salt water sinks to the bottom while the freshwater floats on top. 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 »

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 »

The density of butanol, C4H9OH, is 0.81 grams per cubic centimeter, assuming standard temperature and pressure conditions of 68 degrees Fahrenheit and 1 standard atmosphere unit respectively. The density is determined by... More »
