# How can you use a balance scale and a metric ruler to find the density of a rectangular solid?

Measure the solid to determine its length, width, and height. Multiply all three to get its volume. Weigh the solid to determine its weight. Divide weight by volume to get density. Convert as needed to the appropriate units. Wiki User

### How do you find the density of a perfect cube with a balance and a ruler?

To find the density you need the mass and volume and then, density = mass/volume. Given a ruler, you can easily measure an edge of the cube. If that is x units, then the volume is x3 cubic units. However, it is not clear how you find a mass with just a balance. You need some standard weights, but these do not appear to be provided. You are stuck and cannot answer the question.
