The density of a substance is its mass per unit volume. The symbol most often used for density is ρ. In this class, students will gain a better understanding of what density is and how it is calculated using a simple formula before solving density problems. Students will also look at the application of density to situations in the real world, such as ships and aeroplanes. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 9 but is a great review for all students!
