 Density can be determined by: A. measuring both the mass and volume,  d =  m/v B.  by flotation This experiment will use the first method. MASS.......... will be measured using a balance. VOLUME.... will be measured by: measuring dimensions and using geometry. For a rectangular solid...... V=(l)(w)(h) For a cylinder................... V = (3.1416)r2h measuring the volume of liquid displaced by a solid. You will use a 10 mL Graduated Cylinder to make this measurement. indirectly measuring the weight of water displaced and converting this weight to volume using density of water.

To understand this last method, consider the two pictures of the flask below:  The flask on the left contains only solid The right shows the same flask containing the same solid but filled to the top with distilled water. Air bubbles were carefully removed.
1. The difference in the two weights of the flask is the weight of distilled water needed to fill the flask when the solid is in the flask.
2. You will also measure the weight of the empty flask and stopper and the same flask completely filled with water (no air bubbles) and stoppered exactly as on the right. The difference between these two weights will give you the weight of water that fills the flask when it contains no solid.
3. The difference between the weight of water needed to fill the empty flask and that needed to fill it when it contains the solid is the weight of water displaced by the solid. By measuring the temperature of this distilled water and looking up its density in the "Handbook", you can determine the volume of water displaced.
