Determining Density

During the past several classes, we have been determining the density of various objects.  Density = M/V.  The units are g/cm3.

The students have been using the electronic balance scale to determine the mass of the objects. 

For the rectangular prisms, they are using their ruler to measure the length, width, and height of it.  Then, using the formula L x W x H, the students determine the volume of the prism.  The units are cm3. 
 They record all their data on a data chart.

But how did you get the density of the materials?
