density
The mass per unit volume of a substance under standard conditions.

Contextes :
The density of a fluid is defined as its mass per unit volume.

The procedure for designing ((pumps and blowers)) is the same for both, except when the density is appreciably increased.

masse volumique n f

Notes :
On confond à tort densité et masse volumique, qui sont deux grandeurs différentes. Toutefois cette confusion s'explique par le fait que densité et masse volumique, ont souvent une même valeur numérique qu'il s'agisse d'un corps solide ou liquide.
Elle s'exprime en kilogrammes par mètre cube.

Masse de l'unité de volume d'un corps.

Syn.
masse spécifique n f
Rapport de la masse d'un corps ou d'un fluide considérée par son volume.

Mass per volume


Explanation:
Of course, "mass per volume" is density, but if you are translating the text, you wouldn't want to explicate it as well.

The expression is smometimes stated, "mass per unit volume."

mass density


Explanation:
Mass per unit volume = mass density. A standard translation in scientific reports, of which I do a lot. Good luck.
