Measure the diameter and from that calculate the volume, then determine the mass of the sphere on a weighing device. Then it's just density = mass/volume ========================== It again depends on the sphere whether its hollow or its a solid sphere

If the object has a regular shape, like a cube or sphere, its volume can be calculated readily from solid geometry. Weight divided by volume gives density. For an irregular shape, one trick for finding volume is to submerge it in a calibrated container of water. The amount of increase in the volume of the water is the volume of the object. * * * * * Mosttly correct but density = mass/volume not weight/volume. Mass is not the same as weight.

Sphere

Density is the mass per unit volume. e.g. kg/m3. But you've only given one of the quantities needed - we still need the volume of the sphere.

The diameter is greater at the Equator, because the Earth is not a perfect sphere but is flatter toward the Poles.

Density = Mass/Volume, whatever the shape. So, if the masses are the same, the density is greater when the volume id smaller. Thus the sphere, with the smaller volume has the greater density.

If the shape of the object is regular (a cube or a sphere) then the volume can be calculated from the measurement of the object's key dimension(s). And the object's mass can be determined in a mass balance. Give the mass and volume the density is calculated by dividing the mass by the volume. Where the object's shape is irregular, the volume may be determined by measuring the volume of a liquid displaced by submerging the object completely in that liquid.

Answer 1Because the density of the rock is greater than the density of the water, and the shape of the rock allows it to submerge before it has a chance to displace its weight in water. A sphere of steel will obviously sink in liquid water, but the same amount of steel could be shaped into an object that will float.rttrcf qbuisgbxi75te65r4g hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

It depends on the shape. A solid sphere of any object with a density greater than 1 g/cm3 or 1 kg/m3 would not float in water. Any object with a sufficiently large bowl shape would float regardless of density.

A sphere has the most efficient ratio between the material's mass and its density.

If the same mass is contained in a greater volume, that means that the mass is spread thinner, so there's "less mass in each little piece of volume". That's the same as saying "lower density".

Density = mass / volume. You have the density of aluminum and the mass of the aluminum sphere. The volume of a sphere is 4/3*Pi*r^3. Therefore volume = 4/3*Pi*r^3 = mass / density. Solve for r, which is the radius of the sphere.

A sphere is a round object. It has no sides. The object is 3-D. (Three Dimensional)

Divide its mass by its volume.
