How to Measure Density?


In order to measure the density of an object first you would place the object on a scale and get the weight (a pretty good approximate of mass). Calculating the volume can be trickier if the item is not a cube or a liquid. Placing the object in water and measuring the amount of water displaced will work. Then divide the mass by the volume to get the density. This is difficult to do with large items, and not recommended at all with living items such as dogs and cats.

How to Measure Density
Density is the measure of the mass per volume of a substance. It can be determined by measuring the volume and the density of a substance. Because the shapes of objects can make it difficult to measure volume directly, volume is often measured indirectly... More »
