### What would you use to measure volume of an irregular object?

I would place it in a container full of liquid after measuring
the liquid.
I would measure the amount of liquid displaced by the
object.
That amount is equal to the volume of the irregular object if it
is fully submerged in the liquid.

###### Asked in Science

### How do you find mass if density and displacement are known?

Measure the amount of liquid that is displaced by the object in
question (you will probably need a graduated cylinder). The amount
of liquid displaced is the volume of the object. Then, since you
have the volume of the object, you can find the mass of the object.
Mass=Density x Volume.

###### Asked in Science, Math and Arithmetic, Physics

### Does the amount of liquid displaced by an object depend on the object's mass?

No. It depends on the amount of space the object occupies, which
is known as its "volume".
Within that volume, it may have a large mass, a small mass, or an
in-between mass, depending on
what substance comprises the object. In each case, it would
displace the same amount of liquid.
In fact, where the question uses the slippery word "amount", it's
really talking about "volume" of liquid.

###### Asked in Science, Physics

### Whether an object that sinks or floats in a fluid is determined by?

Sinking or floating is determined by the density of the liquid
and the density of the object. Density is mass/volume.
When you place an object in a liquid, a certain amount of volume
is displaced by the object. If that object puts more mass into the
volume displaced than what the original mass was of the liquid in
that volume was, then the object will sink.
Therefore an object that is more dense than a liquid will
sink.

###### Asked in Science, Physics

### How would the density of a liquid affect the ability of an object to float?

The general rule is that an object will float, if it has less
density that the liquid (or gas) in which it is placed. If the
density of a liquid is greater, a larger amount of objects will
float. Also, the same object will float higher, if it is placed in
a denser liquid.

###### Asked in Physics

### What determines if an object will float on liquid?

if it is lighter than the amount of liquid it displaces
If the density of the object is lower than the density of the
liquid, then it will float. If the object is denser than the
liquid, then it will sink
The answer is just density lol
An object will float if its density is less than its environment.
Or, another way, an object will float if it weighs less than the
volume of the gas (or fluid) that it displaces.
