Is true that density of any orbitting body is inversly proportionate to the square root of orbiting radius?

ie. Dencity of orbiting body = C/(R^0.5)

(The variatin in density upto 15 or 20 % for some of the orbiting bodies may be due to the effect of craters and gaseous layers) .

Is it also true that the constant C is same for all the plantes (to calculate the density of the respective moons) of our sun family?
