Density measures the mass per unit volume is calculated by dividing the mass of the material by the volume and is normally expressed in g/cm 3. The density of a plastic sample may change due to change in crystallinity, loss of plasticizers, absorption of solvent, etc. It is important to note that density varies with temperature. Therefore, to determine the exact density of plastic, it is
