    Help with density measuring device

    Hi every one i hope someone can give me an idea how to achieve that. I am working for at school project, where i am trying to build a device that measure density of a multilayer object/enviroment. I am thinking to achieve that by measuring the axial force exerced while pushig the device inside the multilayer object.
    But how exactly to do that, and what sensors i have to use - i cant really figure that out.
    any one can help ?

    So, density is equal to mass divided by volume.

    Please describe what you are measuring in terms of mass and volume with this method..

    I understand the poster is a student. It sounds like what he is really trying to measure is viscosity. I recall that it took me a while to understand the difference between density and viscosity.
