## The Way Which Finding Out the Density of a Solid

To measure the density of the wood you have to find out the mass and the volume of the wood. This is because density equals mas divided by volume. You first start by working out the volume of the wood this is done by multiplying the length of the wood the width of the wood … Read more

## A Lab Report on Measuring the Density of Unknown Plastic to Identify it

Abstract The average density of four separate pieces of polypropolene was determined to be 0.867g/cm3. Given the average densities of six different known plastics, we were able to identify the unknown plastic as PVC by its density. Procedures Materials All materials for this experiment were provided by the preproom. Techniques Gather all equipment, known plastics, … Read more

## Example Illustration the Impact of Mass and Volume on the Density

Calculated densities of metal samples from measurements of mass and volume This experiment was conducted to show how density is affected by mass and volume. Measurements of mass and volume were taken of two solids and two liquids, one known and one unknown for each. Their densities were calculated, using the formula: d = m/V … Read more
