using well labelled diagrams,briefly describe how you would determine the density of an irregular object

• physics -

Divide the mass by the volume.

Determine the volume from the rise in water level (and calibrated volume) when the object is submerged in water. There must be no voids (empty chambers) inside that remain filled with air.

You can make the deterimination with a piece, or pieces, of the object.

We don't draw diagrams here. Youn shoul;d be able to provide your own.
