You can use water displacement.

First, you need to get a graduated cylinder filled up with water and record the volume.Next, you put an irregularly object into a graduated cylinder fill with water. Then, you measure the volume of the graduated cylinder with the irregularly shaped object in it.Finally, you subtract the highest volume which was the volume of the graduated cylinder with the irregularly shaped object in it by the regular volume of the graduated cylinder which is the smallest volume and there's your answer.

You can use the water displacement method to measure the volume of an irregularly shaped solid. For a regularly shaped object you can do length x width x height.

Volume of liquid

you can divide it into triangles and add up all of the areas

Immerse the object completely in a liquid (e.g. water) and measure the volume of liquid displaced.

yes you can use a balance to measure the volume of an irregular shaped solid.

1. Break the object down into regular shapes that can be measured and quantified. 2. Submerge the object in a known volume of liquid (that won't dissolve the object), and measure the change in volume.

Immerse it in water and the volume of water displaced is equal to the volume of the object.

Answer: You find the volume of an irregularly shaped object by water displacement. Answer: Another method is to use integration, which means that for purposes of calculation, the object is divided into lots of small pieces, for example, rectangular-shaped pieces.

Do you mean volume? If possible drop the item in a measured volume of water or other liquid and remeasure the volume, then subract the to numbers to get the volume of the item.
