**COMPOUND MEASURES: Density. **

Compound measures are those with two or more variables. Covering the resultant in the triangle exposes the formula to be used.

Density of a material is the mass contained within the volume. This is usually called the weight and refers to how heavy the object is. A piece of lead of would be much heaver than a block of plastic with the same dimensions. Density is measured in grams per centimetre cubed (g/cmÂ³) and is found by dividing the Mass by the Volume.

Mass is the quantity of matter and measured in grams and is a product of Density and Volume.

Volume is a measure of the amount of space an object occupies. Found by dividing the mass by the density.
