Question

By what method can you determine the volume of an object?

Answer

The volume of an object can be determined by measuring the amount of water it displaces when it is submerged in water.

Archimedes' principle states that the buoyant force on an object submerged in a fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object. Therefore, the volume of the object can be calculated by measuring the amount of water it displaces.
