Characteristic Property A characteristic property is a specific aspect of a substance that helps us identify it. Examples:

Are mass and volume characteristic properties?

What if we combined mass and volume? If we compare an object’s mass and density, we can get a characteristic property from it called DENSITY.

Calculating Density To calculate a substance’s density, divide the mass by the volume.

Density example: Ms. Melanie finds a metal that has a volume of 1. 2 cm 3 and a mass of 23. 18 g. What is its density?

Density example: You have a piece of wood that has a mass of 12 g and a volume of 15 m. L. What is the density?
