I am trying to figure out if you have one pound of copper density 8.95 and if you have a pound of silver density 10.4 how much space each will take or how much more space the copper will take this can be ounce's or whatever metric measurement they use for volume(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

as I put a pound of copper in water then took out the copper and put a pound of silver in the water and I came up with about three to four nickels (5 cents) worth of volume difference and I was going to figure out if this is about the right amount of volume? Will 8.95 divided by 10.4

which is .86 be an indicator as if you had a cubic foot of copper that with silver it would only be .86th of a cubic foot of silver or does it not work that way?
