Density of Holmium (Ho) [& g/cm3, kg/m3, Uses, Sources ... 2022

Everything has mass and volume, and therefore density. So it is expected that the smallest piece of matter, like an atom of Holmium has it too. But what is the density of an atom of Ho?

Note: Learn more about the density here.

In the case of Holmium , density is 8.80 g/cm³. However, there are interesting facts about Holmium that most don't know about. Also check the kg/m³ conversion...

Holmium Data

Holmium Density g/cm³

8.80 g/cm³


8800 kg/m³

State at 20 °C



It has very few practical applications; however, it has some unusual magnetic properties that offer some hope for future applications.

When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Density of Holmium (Ho) [& g/cm3, kg/m3, Uses, Sources ..." Materials. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.
