DENSITY OF COPPER


The density of copper is 8.96 g/cm3 (8960 kg/m3, 559 lb/ft3, 0.324 lb/ in3) at room temperature. Following copper density table shows density of copper alloys including brass and bronze.

Copper alloys are widely used due to their excellent electrical and thermal conductivities, outstanding corrosion resistance, and ease of fabrication. Copper alloys are generally nonmagnetic. The most common copper alloys are the brasses and the bronzes.
