How to mass an object that is less dense than air?

Quote Quote by mathman View Post
What do mean by "massing"? Note - "mass" is a noun, not a verb.
Having trouble understanding? Drakkith seemed to cope just fine.

Buoyancy! This page should help: http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...pbuoy4.html#c2

Just pretend you are weighing the object underwater and the page should work fine. If you want to do the calculations by hand you can find them on wikipedia's page on Buoyancy as well as on the first site linked.
Thanks, just what I was looking for.
