## How do you find the density of a liquid?

To measure the density of a liquid you do the same thing you would for a solid. Mass the fluid, **find its volume, and divide mass by volume**. To mass the fluid, weigh it in a container, pour it out, weigh the empty container, and subtract the mass of the empty container from the full container.

## What is the unit of measurement for liquid density?

**grams per milliliter or g/ml**is the derived unit that is usually used to express the density of liquids. In measuring the mass of a liquid, they use grams or kilograms, and uses liter, milliliters and cubic centimeters to measure the volume.

## How to find the density of a liquid?

- We can calculate density of a each liquid using the formula:
**Density= Mass/Volume**where mass is that for just the liquid (you must subtract out the mass of the graduated cylinder).

## What are facts about liquid density?

**Density of a liquid**determines**how**it will layer (heaviest to lightest).- If the
**liquid**is the most dense it will sink to the bottom - If the
**liquid**us least dense it float to the bottom. - Layers will remain separated because each
**liquid**is actually floating on top**of**the more dense**liquid**beneath it.
