How Can Density Be Used to Identify an Object?

Answer

Density can be used to identify an object by discovering the mass of your object on the scale, then finding the capacity of an item with a uniform shape. Add some water to the graduated cylinder, dropping one irregular object into the water and note the new volume indicated on the cylinder and subtracting the capacity of the water from the capacity of the water with the object, then dividing the mass of the object by its capacity to determine its density. Lastly compare the density to a list of known densities in order to identify the object.
