Muscle is about 22% more dense than fat tissue. Information taken from: http://www.usaweekend.com/01_issues/010304/010304fitness.html#weight (Click on 'Exercise and...gain weight?!') "..It's true that lean or fat-free muscle tissue is about 22% more dense than fat tissue.." Another source that gives the same information is: http://www.outsidemag.com/bodywork/mrfit/archives/199910/19991006.html "..The density of fat is about 0.9g/cm3, whereas the density of lean tissue is 1.1g/cm3. In other, more unscientific words, lean tissue is about 22% more dense than fat tissue.."
