A Graduated Cylinder

The density of a piece of granite with a volume of 340 cm and mass of 918 g would be 1,400 grams. This is a math problem.

To find the height you would need one extra piece of information - the volume.

Once easy way is displacement. You can place it in liquid and see how much liquid it displaces. This will be the volume.

Without another piece of information, the radius alone isn't enough to tell you the volume of the cone. You really need the height too.

You times the length by the width by the height to find volume. To find the density do mass divided by volume.

Find the length width and height of the ice cube

The density of a metal can be measured by dividing its mass by its volume. The formula for density is density = mass/volume. This can be done by weighing the metal to find its mass and then calculating its volume using measurements such as length, width, and height.

The water level remains the same when a piece of ice floating in a cylinder of water melts because the ice displaces its own weight in water. The increase in water volume due to the melting ice is equal to the volume previously displaced by the ice.

You can find the volume of the irregular cork by immersing it in a known volume of water and measuring the amount the water level rises. The volume of water displaced is equal to the volume of the cork.

In order to determine the density of ice, one must know if the shape is a geometrical figure as the volume is needed to find the density of an object. However if the block of ice isn't any definable shape, then, by measuring a certain amount of water in a beaker and placing ice into it, you are able to find its volume by subtracting the original amount of water by the ice altered volume of the water. Another way to find the volume of ice is to force a phase change causing it to become water. Once it is water, it is then you are able to find its volume by placing it in a beaker. However during the process of melting, the ice looses density by an unsubstantial amount, enabling the results to be accurate. After the volume is found, the mass must be identified in order to find the density of any object as D=M/V. This can be found simply by weighing it on a sensitive scale. Finally after all of the variables are obtained, plug them into the equation: Density=Mass/Volume.

Say for example you have an ice cube of which you need to find the volume..First find something that sinks in water..Next,dip it in water and find the volume of water it displaces..For this a Decanting Can might come in handy..Now tie the ice cube with a string of negligible mass and thickness to the mass that sank in water and lower it into water so that the ice cube is completely immersed in water..This time the volume of water displaced will be greater..Subtract the higher value from the lower and you have the volume of ice cube(or any other material for which you are to determine the volume)

Yes the volume of ice changes when the ice melts. In fact the volume of ice goes on increasing up to 0 degree Celsius and when the ice melts completely the volume of ice decreases on the contrary. Yes because when ice freezes, it expands and when it melts, it gets smaller.

The volume of 1kg of ice is approximately 0.916 liters.

8 inches x 8 inches = 64 square inches = the area of the piece of paper. Length and width are used to find the area of an object, not the volume (cubic inches). To find the volume of the piece of paper you need to know the depth of the sheet of paper. You might be able to find this out with a Google search.
