Density of Non-Geometric Objects

The Density of non-geometric objects can be determined using water displacement.

###### Calculating Density

Concept #1: Calculate the volume of the water displaced by the submerging of the object. (The volume of the given cylinders are in mL).

Practice: A piece of unknown solid weighs approximately 0.045 lbs. When a scientist places it in a glass beaker the water level increases from 200 mL to 260 mL. What is the density of the unknown solid in g/mL?

Practice: If an irregularly shaped apple possesses a density of 0.96 g/cm3, what is its mass in milligrams? (The volume of the given cylinders are in mL).
