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. ...

What has to happen to a gas for turn into a liquid?
The object that is a gas must lose a certain amount heat energy to condense into a liquid state. This amount depends on the type of element and mass of the object. ...

What Metric unit measures the volume of a object with straight sides?
Metric units of volume include the cubic meter, cubic centimeter, cubic millimeter, milliliter, cubic kilometer, and liter. When used to express the volume of a space or object, the shape of the object is completely irrelevant. ...

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. ...

Does weight measure the amount of mass in an object?
mass is how much weight an object has so mass (N) measures how much weight (G) an object has ...

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. ...
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. ...
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. ...
What metric system is used to determine the amount of space an object takes up?
That would be volume, which is measured in Liters (L).
