Density of salt and graphs

  1. Feb 26, 2008 #1
    Can anyone tell me what the density of salt is on average? I know there are many types of salt, but there must be an average value to this right?
    Because I’ve got the volume of this salt particle and I need its density in order to work out the mass.

    I also want to plot a graph of Intensity against scattered angle, for the diffraction of laser light by particles. But I have voltage values instead of intensity values, Shall I still use the voltage values for my graph or do I convert it to intensity values?

    Thanks a lot
    From steve

    If you're talking about crystalline sodium choride, it's about 2.17 g/cc.
