Density of compact bone

Value 2000 kg/m^3
Organism vertebrates
Reference Brian Cotterell, Fracture and Life, Imperial College Press, 2010 p.77 bottom paragraph
Comments "The strength of bone comes from compact bone. However, compact bone has a comparatively high density of 2,000kg/m^3 and if bones were composed entirely of compact bone the strength-to-weight ratio would be too small."
