Calculating apparent density of a solid

  1. Oct 29, 2009 #1
    Material is Carbon.

    Rectangular bar 3.409 L x .45 T x .45 H

    Weight: 22.94 grams

    I do not have access to a water density check.

    What is the formula?

    density = mass / volume

    The volume is easily determined from the dimensions you give.
