## What tool is used to measure density of a liquid?

hydrometer

hydrometer, device for measuring some characteristics of a liquid, such as its density (weight per unit volume) or specific gravity (weight per unit volume compared with water).

## What are the 3 ways we measure density?

The densities of brass and aluminum will be calculated from mass and volume measurements. To illustrate the effects of precision on data, volumes will be determined by three different methods: geometrically (measuring lengths); water displacement; and pycnometry.

**What are the main ways to measure the density?**

Using a vernier caliper or ruler, measure the length, depth and width of the object in centimeters. Multiply these three measurements to find the volume in cubic centimeters. Divide the object’s mass by its volume to determine its density. Density is expressed in grams per cubic centimeter or grams per milliliter.

### What is density in liquid?

The density of a liquid is a measure of how heavy it is for the amount measured. If you weigh equal amounts or volumes of two different liquids, the liquid that weighs more is more dense. If a liquid that is less dense than water is gently added to the surface of the water, it will float on the water.

### How do you find the density of a liquid without mass?

A simple method based on the moment of forces and Archimedes’ principle is described for finding density without measuring the mass and volume of an object. The method involves balancing two unknown objects of masses M1 and M2 on each side of a pivot on a metre rule and measuring their corresponding moment arms.

**What measures density and relative density of a liquid?**

Hydrometer

Hydrometer. The relative density of a liquid can be measured using a hydrometer. This consists of a bulb attached to a stalk of constant cross-sectional area, as shown in the adjacent diagram.

#### What is the density of liquid?

Just like a solid, the density of a liquid equals the mass of the liquid divided by its volume; D = m/v. The density of water is 1 gram per cubic centimeter. The density of a substance is the same regardless of the size of the sample.

#### What is the density of liquid water?

997 kg/m³Water / Density

**What is the highest density liquid?**

Mercury

Mercury has the highest density at standard temperature and pressure, Stay tuned with BYJU’S to learn more about other concepts such as the density of mercury. Was this answer helpful?

## What is the correct density of a liquid?

Weigh each liquid in grams (make sure you subtract the weight of the beaker!) and then divide that number by the volume (number of milliliters) of the liquid. The answer is density in grams per milliliter. (Your answer will be more exact if you use a graduated cylinder instead of a beaker to measure the volume and weigh the liquid.)

## How can you determine the relative density of a liquid?

Density is defined as the mass per unit……………………….. A.

**What is the formula for density of liquid?**

Density is how much matter is contained within a volume. A dense object weighs more than a less dense object that is the same size.

### How do you calculate densities of various liquids?

Use a ruler to measure the length (l),width (w) and height (h) of a steel cube.
