Units of Measure

Tools used to meassure density?


Wiki User

The simplest way is to determine the mass and volume of whatever you want to know the density of.

However there are other methods as well such as those used by seismologists to calculate the relative density of different parts of the earth's interior. They measure the time it takes for a wave to reach a certain seismograph since density affects the speed of waves such as those generated by earthquakes.
