What is the density of water?

We all went to school and we all studied physics there, but it was a very long time ago and part of the knowledge went nowhere.

A very frequent question related to general education physics: what is the density of water? In general, if it is very good to delve into the course of physics, then we can recall that under different conditions the density of water is different.

It is customary to take the density of chemically purified water at its temperature equal to +4 degrees Celsius. The density of such water is 1 gram per cubic centimeter (1 g / cm), when water temperature changes in any direction, its density will decrease.
