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.
Mass divided by Volume = Density. Or use the displacement method for an irregularly shaped object.
break it up into pieces you know how to find the volume of
The apple was irregularly shaped
A balance is used to measure the mass of an irregularly shaped solid.
To determine the identity of an irregularly shaped solid that is soluble in water, use logic. First record your mass. Then, try placing it in a liquid that it will not dissolve in to get the volume. Calculate the density and hopefully identify your substance.
Weight it. Find it's volume. (hint - how much water does it displace). Divide.
Force it below the surface of water and measure the force required.
The volume of an irregularly shaped solid can be measured by placing the solid in a known quantity of water in a container with measurement markings. Take the new volume and find the difference between this and the old volume. This is the volume of your irregularly shaped solid.
