Measuring the Mass of a Rock You use a scale to weigh the rock, next you put a certain amount of water in a container, next you add the rock to the water and subtract the current water level from the original water level, the weight of the rock divided by the amount of water it displaced is the mass.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The mass of a rock sample is measured placing the sample on an adequate balance !

The unit of mass in SI is the kilogram (kg) and the derived unit for density is kg/m3 (g/cm3 is also accepted). Do not confuse mass with weight.

An objects mass is a measure of the force of gravity acting on the object?

No, mass is a measure of how much matter there is. Weight is the measure of force of gravity acting on that mass. A rock has the same mass whether it's on Earth or the Moon or Jupiter, or floating out in space. The weight for each of these situations will be quite different.

How do you find the density of a large rock?

Measure the volume and the mass divide the mass (in thousands of kilograms) by the volume (in cubic meters). If the rock is too large to be measured, take a typical sample of the rock that is small enough and do the measurements on the sample. (If the rock is homogeneous, the density of the sample should not differ from that of the entire rock).

What tools are needed to find the density of a rock?

Mass in a rock?

The mass of a rock depends on the type of rock studied. Heavier rocks generally will have a higher mass.


What is the density if a rock is 212 mass and the volume is 12g?

This question cannot be answered for the following reasons: 1. There are no units for the mass of the rock. It could be 212 kilograms, pounds, tons etc. 2. The volume cannot be measured in g - which stands for grams (a measure of mass). It is not possible to determine whether the volume is in litres, cubic feet or any other measure.

It is not used for this.A hydrometer is an instrument used to measure the specific gravity (or relative density) of liquids, NOT rock.To measure the density of a rock you weigh a piece of it in air, then measure the volume of water it displaces in a measuring jug.Density = mass/volume.
