(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Decide the density parameter from the following data:

z=0.04, m= 17.38 and σ=0.19

2. Relevant equations

Definition of the density parameter:

Where p0 is the current density and pc is the critical density.

3. The attempt at a solution

I feel like I don't have enough information to calculate it as I'm unable to calculate the current density of the universe. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
