how does the temperature affect the density of an object?

it wont let me post my answer for you

If I remember correctly, the higher the temperature, the density will be less. If it is warmer the molecules/particles move faster and produce more collisions. More collision and movement mean less stability for the object overall. And vice versa: cool temperature will mean less movement and therefore provide more stability for the object, meaning it is dense....Think of an ice cube, it is dense in the freezer where it is cold, but in the hot, it becomes liquid and is not as dense as it once was.

thank you
