# Density of Regular Shaped Solids

advertisement ```Density of Regular Shaped Objects
Procedure:
1) Measure the Length, Width, and Height of each
cube/rectangle. Record this information in Table 1.
2) Using the digital scale obtain the mass of the cube.
Record this information in Table 1.
3) Calculate the Volume of the cube. (Remember that
V=LxWxH) Record this information in Table 1.
4) Density is calculated like this:
Density = Mass of an object &divide; Volume of that
object
Shorthand  D = M / V

Calculate the density of each cube. Record this
information in Table 1.

5) Create a BAR graph showing the densities of the objects.
Density will be graphed on the Y-Axis and the types of
cubes on the X-Axis
