Take the mass of the block (g) using a scale and recode it in a table.
Fill a Eureka can with water and let it empty out until it stops dripping.
Put the block into the Eureka can and catch the displaced water using a measuring cylinder.
Record the volume of displaced water (ml).
Calculate the density of the block by dividing mass by volume
Repeat the test 2 more times for this block.
Repeat steps 1-6 for the other blocks.
