Earth, of the 8 planets in the Solar System, is the densest planet! Density is the amount of “stuff” (molecules and atoms) that are packed into one space. Objects’ density can be found by dividing the mass (weight) of an object by the volume (space it takes up) of an object. Density is measured in grams per milliliter (g/mL). If something has a high density, the atoms and molecules are packed tightly together. If something has a low density, it has less molecules and atoms together.
