### How to calculate density weight for aluminum?

Get a sample of the metal. Use a scale to find its mass. If it is shape is that of a rectangular solid (box) measure length, width, and height and multiply to find volume. If it is irregularly shaped, use the water displacement method to find its volume. Divide the mass by the volume to get the density.

### How would you find the density of an irregularly shaped object such as a rock?

Weight it. Find it's volume. (hint - how much water does it displace). Divide.

### What is formula for calculating an object's density?

Mass divided by Volume = Density. Or use the displacement method for an irregularly shaped object.

### What shape has three long sides and 3 short sides in the shape of a triangle?

An irregularly truncated hexagon.

### How do you find the density of a regular square shape?

A regular square shape is a 2-dimensional object. It has no volume and therefore no mass. Therefore, it cannot have a density.

### How do you find the volume of a sphere giving the mass and density?

Volume of anything = (its mass) divided by (its density) regardless of what shape it happens to be.

### How can you find the density of a solid with a regular shape?

There is insufficient information for us to answer this question. Density = Mass / Volume. For a regular shape, the volume can be determined from a formula - which will depend on the shape. However, you still require the mass for which there is no information.

### How Do You describe the shape of a data set?

You describe the shape, not of the data set, but of its density function.You describe the shape, not of the data set, but of its density function.You describe the shape, not of the data set, but of its density function.You describe the shape, not of the data set, but of its density function.

### Does the shape of an object change its density?

Changing the shape CAN change the density. If you change it into a smaller shape, then you increase the density. However the mass will not change.

### Are caves always the same shape?

no Caves are irregularly shaped, and are quite varied in their irregular shapes.

Tectonic plates.
