Density of Various Materials

Density is a way of describing the weight (mass) of a quantity of material.  The following is a table of density of some common materials that I use in my work.  These values are all stated in pounds per cubic inch.  The values come  from reference books and data sheets.  For greatest accuracy use the values found on the material data sheet or manufactures product specification sheet.
