# How do you measure the density of a regular shape?

151617

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 06/29/2010

you devide the mass of the object by the volume

e.g. the mass of the block = 360g

the volume = 120cm3

to find the density you divide 360 by 120 which = 3

to find the volume of a block you times the height by the width by the lenth

eg 6 (L), 5(W), 4(H) = 6x5x4 = 120

### 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.

###### Asked in Science, Physics, Chemistry

### What would you use if you needed to determine the density of an object?

Density is determined by weight divided by volume. To measure
the weight, use a scale of some kind (a triple beam balance is
good). To measure the volume, if the object has an irregular shape
you would use a graduated cylinder, to find out how much water it
displaces. If it has a regular shape, then it is just a matter of
measuring it with a ruler and doing the geometrical
calculation.

###### Asked in Science, Measuring Tools

### Tool to measure volume of regular solid?

If its a simple shape you can take measurements with a ruler,
calipers or tape measure and calculate it.
For simple as well as more complex shapes, if you know the
material it is made from, you can work out the volume by taking the
mass of the object and dividing by the density of the material,
since; density = mass/volume
If you don't know the density, then you can work out the volume
by submerging the object in water, and measuring...

### How do you measure the density of an empty school bag?

To measure the density of the empty school bag including the air
in the bag, you
should be able to simply weigh it, and measure its dimensions,
and calculate the
density, which is weight divided by volume. Bags have a more or
less rectangular
shape, so the volume is simply length times width times height.
If you want to
measure the density of the material from which the bad is made,
that is a little more
complicated, and might require you to squeeze the bag...

### Are millimeters related to an object's density?

No, they are a measure of length/distance.
___________
Indirectly, they are related. Density is the amount of mass in
an object per unit of volume of the object, and linear measures
would be integral to the measurement of volume, whether the object
is a regular geometric shape, or if the volume has to be calculated
in more complex ways.
