How to Calculate and Solve for Density in Alloying | Imperfection in Solids

Last Updated on January 13, 2023

The image above represents density in alloying.

To compute for density in alloying, four essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Composition of Metal 1 (C1), Composition of Metal 2 (C2), Density of Metal 1 (ρ1and Density of Metal 2 (ρ2).

The formula for calculating the density in alloying:

ρave = 100/((C1/ρ1) + (C2/ρ2))


ρave = Density in Alloying
C1 = Composition of Metal 1
C2 = Composition of Metal 2
ρ1 = Density of Metal 1
ρ2 = Density of Metal 2

Given an example;
Find the density in alloying when the composition of metal 1 is 2, the composition of metal 2 is 4, the density of metal 1 is 6 and the density of metal 2 is 8.

This implies that;

C1 = Composition of Metal 1 = 2
C2 = Composition of Metal 2 = 4
ρ1 = Density of Metal 1 = 6
ρ2 = Density of Metal 2 = 8

ρave = 100/((C1/ρ1) + (C2/ρ2))
ρave = 100/((2/6) + (4/8))
ρave = 100/((0.333) + (0.5))
ρave = 100/(0.833)
ρave = 120.0

Therefore, the density in alloying is 120.0 kg/m³.
