Enter the initial water level, final water level, and mass of the object into the calculator to determine the density of the object.

## Water Displacement Formula

The following formula is used to calculate density from water displacement.

D = m / (FW – IW)

- Where D is the density g/cm^3
- m is the mass in grams
- FW is the final water level (mL)
- IW is the initial water level (mL)

## Water Displacement Definition

Water displacement is defined as the density of an object calculated through the displacement of a certain amount of water.

## FAQ

**What is the water displacement method?**

The water displacement method is a method for calculating the density and volume of an object. It does this through measure the amount of displaced water when the object is submerged under water that is in a container. The amount of displaced water is equal to the volume. This volume can then be used to calculate the density.
