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.

You find a measure of the amount of matter in the rock.

You use a triple-beam scale to measure mass.

a pan balance

Kilograms.

We would use MassSingle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Mass is the measure of matter.

We measure mass with grams.

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).

The SI unit of mass is kilogram (kg).

There are a number of tools that are needed to find the density of a rock. You will mainly need a scale to measure the weight and the volume of the rock. Divide the mass of the rock by the volume to find the density.

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

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.

Mass is the measure of matter in an objevt

Scales either measure mass, or weight - but they are callibrated to show mass (for example, kilograms).

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.

345 mm is not a measure of mass; it is a measure of length.

a gradute is used to measure mass

The basic unit of measurement for mass is the kilogram. A 2 kg rock is twice the mass of a 1 kg rock.

Not always easy. Since density is defined as the mass of a unit volume of material,you would measure the volume of the rock by putting it into a container half filled with water and then measure the volume change.

You can't measure mass in meters. Meters is a measure of length, not mass

You can measure mass.
