is there any alloy which is equally dense with gold?

  • science -

    density:

    Tungsten: 19.25 g/cm^3
    Gold: 19.282 g/cm^3
    Platinum: 21.46 g/cm^3

    So, for example, to produce exactly the same density as a pure gold coin, one would just need to create an alloy consisting of 98.55% tungsten and 1.45% platinum.
