# How can the density of a liquid be measured?

The definition of density is mass per unit volume. Thus, you measure the volume of a liquid in mls, and then weight that volume in grams. You thus obtain grams/volume, and that is the density expressed as grams per ml.

### How is density of a liquid measured?

The density of a liquid can be measured with a beaker. the beaker is weighed alone, then a specific measured volume of the liquid is placed in the beaker and the beaker is reweighed. The difference between the beaker with and without the water is noted. from there the mass of the liquid for the specific volume is then known. using hte formula d = m/v, we can therefore determine the density. where m is…

### Can the density of mass be measured?

Density is the mass per unit volume of a substance. If you can take a unit volume, (1cm3) of a material, the measured mass is it's density. Also, if you cannot separate out a unit volume, you can measure the volume of an object by immersing it in a liquid and measuring the volume of the liquid displaced by the object. Then measure the mass of that object. Density (Mass / Volume) When mass is…

### How can we calculate the density of a irregular solid or a liquid?

You can dip the irregular solid in a water or other suitable liquid. This is how, you can measure the volume of the solid. The mass can be measured by weighing scale. Mass/volume = density. It is easy to measure the mass and volume of the liquid. First measure the mass the container. Then add the liquid to it. You will get the mass of the liquid. Then measure the volume of the liquid. Use…
