Question:

What is the density of steel?

I need to know the density of steel as one of my physical properties of steel. Any answers? If u have more physical or chemical properties of steel, that would help to thanks.

Answer:

The short answer to your question is that the density of plain mild steel is 7.85. The long answer is that depending on where you look, or the grade of steel that you are talking about can change this value. A density of 7.88 is often quoted for mild steel as well. If you add alloying elements such as tungsten, chrome or manganese to improve the steel, the density will change. So the long answer is that the density of steel can vary between 7.75 and 8.05.

It depends on what kind of steel it is. Martensitic steel has a lower density than austenitic steel. However, a good number for a typical steel is 0.286 pounds per cubic inch (7.92 grams per cubic centimeter).
