1. Data table of density of common liquids

The density of a compound is one of the most important data to know in order to engage in Process Engineering Designs. It can be calculated by sampling a volume V of the liquid, then measure the weight m of this volume V of liquid, the density is then m/V. The density depends on the temperature.

Please find below a table of common compounds and their density at a given temperature, aggregated from different sources (warning : values were not verified individually). Please scroll down, the compounds are sorted alphabetically ; or use the Ctrl+F function to find what you are looking for.
