The density of oxide glass including silicate, borate,
phosphate, tellurite, and germanate glasses were measured using the
Archimedes method. On the assumption that the ionic packing ratio is
approximately a constant independent of chemical composition, an
empirical equation for estimating the density from chemical composition
was proposed. The calculated values are in reasonable agreement with the
corresponding measured ones.
