The density of water is the weight of the water per its unit volume, which depends on the temperature of the water. The usual value used in calculations is 1 gram per milliliter (1 g/ml) or 1 gram per cubic centimeter (1 g/cm^{3}). While you can round the density to 1 gram per milliliter, there are more precise values for you to use.

The density of pure water actually is somewhat *less* than 1 g/cm^{3}. A standard table lists the values for the density of liquid water. Note that water can be supercooled and remain a liquid well below its normal freezing point. The maximum density of water occurs around 4 degrees Celsius. Ice is less dense than liquid water, so it floats.
