Density of Phosphorus (P) [& g/cm3, kg/m3, Uses, Sources ...

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

Note: Learn more about the density here.

In the case of Phosphorus , density is 1.82 g/cm³. However, there are interesting facts about Phosphorus that most don't know about. Also check the kg/m³ conversion...

Phosphorus Data

Phosphorus Density g/cm³

1.82 g/cm³


1820 kg/m³

State at 20 °C



Used in the production of fertilizers and detergents. Some is used in fireworks, safety matches, and incendiary weapons. Also some applications for it and some of its compounds which glow in the dark.

Found most often in phosphate rock. Pure phosphorus is obtained by heating a mixture of phosphate rock, coke, and silica to about 1450 °C.

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 Phosphorus (P) [& 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.
