Best Answer

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.

yes a metric ruler and a meter ruler is the same

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.

None. A metric ruler would not show inches, as these are not a metric measurements. It would show millimetres and centimetres.

An english ruler uses inches and feet, and a metric ruler uses centimeters, millimeters, decimeters and meters.

You're pretty much up a creek. You can find the volume using only a ruler, but without a way to find the mass, you will not be able to determine the density.
