### What instrument measures the density of a fluid?

A hydrometer measures the density of a fluid.
Pycnometer to measure density
Density cannot be measured directly. You must find the mass of
the liquid and its volume. You would use a graduated cylinder to
measure the volume of a liquid, and you would use a scale or
balance to measure its mass. To measure the mass, first measure the
mass of an empty beaker or cylinder. Then place the entire volume
of the liquid into the beaker. Then measure the mass of the beaker
or cylinder with the liquid. Subtract the first mass measurement
from the second mass measurement. The result is the mass of the
liquid. Then, use the density equation, density = mass/volume, to
calculate the density of the liquid.

###### Asked in Science

### 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 the
above formula to calculate the density of the liquid.

### How would you determine the density of an unknown liquid?

First measure out a known volume of the liquid using a beaker or
measuring cup, say a liter or 50 mililiters or something of the
like, then measure the mass of that amount of liquid with a
balance(remember to subtract the mass of the liquid's container),
then divide that mass by the volume of liquid you've used and, hey
presto, you have a density.
