I am not positive but i think that a regular shaped object can be measured and an irregular can not Hope this helps :D

method usede to figure the volume of an irregular shaped object

Mass divided by Volume = Density. Or use the displacement method for an irregularly shaped object.

Use the water displacement method. The object is equal to the amount of water it displaces. :)

Water Displacement Method?

The same units are used for regular or irregular objects - for example, kilogram per cubic meter.

Density = (mass) divided by (volume)regardless of the substance, or the shape of the sample.

To measure volume of large irregular shaped objects you need a displacement can

Weigh the object. Determine the volume. Divide the mass by the volume to get the density. To get the volume of an irregular shaped object can be challenging especially if there are cavities (holes) in it. submersion in a liquid or powder of known volume might be possible. Measure the difference in the volume of the liquid and the liquid + the object (making sure the object is entirely below the surface of the liquid and that any cavities are filled).

Measure the volume of the object which is same as the volume of the displaced liquid in which that sinks. And measure the mass of the same object from a weighing machine. then use density = mass/volume

First you get the object mass by weighing it.Then you get its volume by immersing it in a scaled water container and see the increase in water volume which gives the object volume.Then you divide the mass by the volume to get the object density.
