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

I measured the weight(in Newtons), mass(in Kilograms), and volume(in cubic meters) of some objects. Then I tried to calculate the mass density and the weight density of the objects.

2. Relevant equations

Weight Density = weight/volume

Mass Density = mass/volume

ex. weight density of object one ... 2.00 N / 2.55x10-5 m3 = 78431 ??

mass density of object one ... .204kg / 2.55x10-5 m3 = 8000 ??

3. The attempt at a solution

I have found my numeric answers but i do not know what units the weight density and mass density are measured in. Would the weight density be measured in newtons/ cubic meters and the mass density in kg/ cubic meters?
