It applies to any substance with mass and volume. Why are you having so
much trouble with grade-school physics concepts?

You are a chemist Uncle Ducaca: Surely you must know what the kg/m^3,
SI mass density applies to: Like how does it compare to the density of
pure water; which I always thought was the standard of density - One
pound divided by one foot per second^2 = one dyne divided by one
centimeter per second^2 = one newton divided by one meter per second
^2 - which is the density to which the density of platinum; lead, and
other things is compared to get their density relative to it: Isn't
that the basis of the hydometer?
Wouldn't a kg/m^3 be about the lightest of all substances? Wouldn't it
not only float on water, but also on the thinest of air? Or have I got

Yes Greg. Even I know that: But the density of various substances
varies with temperature and pressure: The density of platinum at
ordinary temperatures and pressures here on Earth is more than twenty
times that of pure water.
Simply specifying units of density is meaningless: What in the world;
or the whole universe for that matter, has units of One kg/m^3? I'd
like to know!
See Donald--This is where you are ****ed in the head. Of course density
varies with variables like temperature. You seem to think it should be
something other than simply mass per volume. God (if there was one) only
knows why. Every time you pee, your density increases--get over it!

Does it matter? The SI unit of density is the kg/m^3; every substance
has a value measurable in those units. The units could have been
hundredweight per acre-foot, or ounces (of one kind or another) per
cubic inch. The *relative* densities of different substances would not
be affected thereby. It is irrelevant whether or not there is, in any
particular system, some substance that has a value of 1.0.
As it happens though, at standard pressure and temperature, hydrogen
chloride gas has a density of 1.00045 kg/m^3 (CRC Handbook of Chemistry
