# What 2 ways to get the volume for an object?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 10/09/2008

You can measure the volume by filling a container (the best option would be an accurate measuring cilinder) with water. Note how much water is in the container, now immerse the object you want to measure in the water and once more note how much water is in the container. The difference between your second measurement and the first is the total volume of the object.

Another way would be to weigh the object and then calculate its volume via its density

Density=mass/volume so volume=mass/density. This method only works if your know the density of the object.

A third way would be to simply measure the dimensions of the object and mathematically calculate the volume (e.g. a cube would be length*width*height).

object in it.

###### Asked in Science

### Will density change if you split an object?

ANSWER:
No. The mass will be halved but the density will remain the same.
___________________________________________________________
The density will remain the same since the formula for density
of an object is mass/volume. When you split and object, the mass is
divided by 2, and the volume is divided by 2 (or whatever fraction
you want to cut your item). If you would, compare mass/volume=mass
divided by 2/volume divided by 2.
