# Describe an Experiment to Determine the Density of a Liquid. - ICSE Class 8 - Physics

ConceptConcept of Measurement of Density of Fluids

#### Question

Describe an experiment to determine the density of a liquid.

#### Solution

To determine the density of a liquid D = M / V
We need to find (i) the vol. of liquid say milk, (ii) mass of liquid.
EXPERIMENT:
(i) To find the mass of milk:
wt. of empty 100 c.c beaker = Mg = 70 g (say)
Fill the beaker (half) with milk and weigh again=M2 g = 116 g (say)
(ii) To find the vol. of milk:
TrAnsfer this milk into measuring cylinder and note the volume V = 40 c.c (say)

∴Density of milk =D=M/V=(m_2-m_1)/(40c.c)

=(116-70)/40=46/40=4.6/4=1.15 g cm^-3

Is there an error in this question or solution?
