Density is a fundamental physical property of matter that describes how much mass is contained within a given volume. It is an intrinsic property, meaning it does not depend on the amount of material present. For wooden blocks, density can vary depending on the type of wood and its moisture content.

The formula for density is:

\[ \rho = \frac{m}{V} \]

Where:

- \( \rho \) (rho) is the density (in kg/m³)
- \( m \) is the mass of the wooden block (in kg)
- \( V \) is the volume of the wooden block (in m³)

Let's calculate the density of a wooden block:

- Given:
- Mass of the wooden block (\( m \)) = 2.5 kg
- Volume of the wooden block (\( V \)) = 0.005 m³

- Apply the density formula: \[ \rho = \frac{m}{V} \]
- Substitute the known values: \[ \rho = \frac{2.5 \text{ kg}}{0.005 \text{ m³}} \]
- Perform the calculation: \[ \rho = 500 \text{ kg/m³} \]

Let's visualize the concept of density with wooden blocks:

This diagram illustrates:

- Different types of wood with varying densities
- The relationship between volume and density (larger volumes for less dense wood with the same mass)
- Common wood types and their approximate densities
