  Density Altitude Calculator - English
Density altitude is defined as the altitude in the International Standard Atmosphere that has the same air density as the air being evaluated.
The density of the air is reduced by decreased air pressure, increased temperatures and increased moisture.
Relative density is the ratio of the actual air density to the standard sea level density, expressed as a percentage.

In physics, density is the ratio of the mass of a substance to its volume, and it can be calculated by dividing the mass by the volume.
Specific gravity is the density of a substance divided by the density of another substance that is used as a standard.
Particle density is the number of particles in a given volume divided by that volume.

 Density - LoveToKnow 1911
In the numerical expression of absolute densities it is necessary to specify the units of mass and volume employed; while in the case of relative densities, it is only necessary to specify the standard substance, since the result is a mere number.
Related to the determination of the density of a gas is the determination of the density of a vapour, i.e.
Its advantages rest on its high density and mobility; its main disadvantages are its liability to decomposition, the originally colourless liquid becoming dark owing to the separation of iodine, and its high coefficient of expansion.

 Density   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
DENSITY is a physical property of matter, as each element and compound has a unique density associated with it.
Density defined in a qualitative manner as the measure of the relative "heaviness" of objects with a constant volume.
However the man may weigh: 150 lbs on earth, 25 lbs on the moon (because the force of gravity on the moon is 1/6 that of the earth), and be "weightless" in space.

 Population density - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Population density is a measurement of population per unit area or unit volume.
Cities with exceptionally high population densities are often considered to be overpopulated, though the extent to which this is the case depends on factors like quality of housing and infrastructure or access to resources.
City population is however, heavily dependent on the definition used for the urban area: densities will be far higher for the central municipality than when more recently-developed and as yet administratively unincorporated suburbs are included, as in the concepts of agglomeration or metropolitan area, the latter including sometimes neighbouring cities.

 Gas Density
For solids, the density of a single element or compound remains fairly constant because the molecules are bound to one another.
Since density is defined to be the mass divided by the volume, density depends directly on the size of the container in which a fixed mass of gas is confined.
Turning to the larger scale, the density is a state variable of a gas and the change in density during a process is governed by the laws of thermodynamics.

 Density
Density relates the mass of a substance to its volume through the formula: D = M/V. From a density calculation, we may assess whether a substance will float or sink in any given medium and may also obtain a clue as to the identity of the substance.
Because 1ml of water is equal to 1 cubic centimeter of water, the volume of the object is equal to the new volume in the graduated cylinder minus the original volume of water.
The density formula may also be used to calculate the volume or the mass of an object, provided the other two variables in the equation are known.

The weight density of a material is the weight of a given volume unit of the material divided by that volume unit.

 Density Altitude   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
In the U.S., such a density altitude is described as a "high density altitude." This can be confusing because you might assume that the word "high" modifies "density." That is, you might thank that the air has a high density as it does at low altitudes.
The air's density is highest at low elevations when the pressure is high and the temperature is low, such as on a sunny but extremely cold, winter's day in Alaska.
Density altitude is what makes it hard or even impossible for you to take your rather large brother-in-law flying in the middle of July when you had no problem at all lifting him off the ground back in March or April.

 Harvard Gazette: What makes a city thrive?
The forum was a follow-up to an earlier conference held by the BSA in September 2003.
While most of those who attended the event viewed density as a cure for the city's ills, that attitude is by no means shared by all who take an interest in the welfare of America's towns and cities.
Density is also considered good for the environment because it is easier and cheaper to provide heating, electricity, sewerage, and other services to people living in concentrated groups than to those in single-family homes in suburban areas.

 Density of Matter - School for Champions: Succeed in Physical Science
The density of a quantity of matter is its mass divided by its volume.
Density is related to how compressed the material is and the weight of its atoms or molecules per unit volume.
Since density is related to the mass of an object, the density of a given volume of lead would be the same on both the Earth and the Moon, although the lead would weigh less on the Moon because of the lower gravity there.

Density is defined as the mass per unit volume of a substance under fixed conditions.
In industrial applications, the density of a substance is not always specified n units of kg/m3 or g/l or g/ml and the term specific gravity (SG) is used widely.
Specific gravity (SG), also known as Relative density, is an abstract number expressing the ratio of the density of one substance to the density of another reference substance, both obtained at the same temperature and pressure.

 DENSITY
Density is a physical property of matter- it is a descriptive characteristic of each type of material.
The term in the denominator of the density equation decreases, causing the overall fraction to increase.
Anyway, the density of a gas is a highly variable property, given the high compressibility of gases.

 Areal Density
The linear density of a disk is not constant over its entire surface--bear this in mind when reading density specifications, which usually list only the maximum density of the disk.
The reason that density varies is because the lengths of the tracks increase as you move from the inside tracks to the outside tracks, so outer tracks can hold more data than inner ones.
The reason is that the areal density of the disk impacts both of the key hard disk performance factors: both positioning speed and data transfer rate.

The density of air, ρ (Greek: rho) (air density), is the mass per unit volume of Earth's atmosphere, and is a useful value in aeronautics.
Air density and air pressure decrease with increasing altitude.
In this case, the density of the air is the sum of the density of the dry air and the density of the water vapor:

In addition to a basic discussion of air density, we will also describe the effects of lower air density – such as caused by going to high altitudes – on humans, how humidity affects air density – you might be surprised – and the affects of air density of aircraft, baseballs, and even racing cars.
We see that the air's density is lowest at a high elevation on a hot day when the atmospheric pressure is low, say in Denver when a storm is moving in on a hot day.
The air's density is highest at low elevations when the pressure is high and the temperature is low, such as on a sunny but extremely cold, winter's day in Alaska.

 Equations - Air Density and Density Altitude
The density altitude is the altitude at which the density of the International Standard Atmosphere (ISA) is the same as the density of the air being evaluated.
Density altitude is a concept based on solely on air density, and is neither "pressure altitude" nor "mean sea-level altitude", but is strictly "density altitude".
Density altitude has been a convenient yardstick for pilots to compare the performance of aircraft at various altitudes, but it is in fact the air density that is the fundamentally important quantity, and density altitude is simply one way to express the air density.
