Caption

Measuring the density of an object, illustration. The mass of the object can be determined by placing it on a top-pan balance. If the object has an irregular shape, its volume can be measured by placing it in a measuring cylinder partly filled with water. The increase in the level of the water indicates the amount of water displaced, and therefore the volume of the submerged object. To calculate its density, the object's mass is divided by its volume.
