Calculate the density of the wood?

asked by moses
  1. density = mass / volume

    You can weigh it to get the weight and mass = weight / g

    If the geometry is simple you can measure and compute the volume. If it is not then submerge it in a full bucket of water and measure the volume of the water that flows over the spout with a measuring cup calibrated in cubic centimeters or whatever..
