# Density Calculations Worksheet

This worksheet will allow you to convert your density-based measurements into the right dimensions for your building. The structure of a building is important and many buildings are made out of materials that are far too heavy for the foundations in which they are standing on.

The dry wall is not suitable for this because it is unstable. It can shift or collapse causing large amounts of damage. The foundation or ground in which the building is sitting must be solid and this worksheet will enable you to determine the density and load to which your building is subject.

There are many different types of construction and engineering for the foundation for buildings. Many buildings are constructed on platforms where the sides of the building are built upon a raised platform. This worksheet allows you to determine the types of materials to use on your foundation.

The density of a building is determined by the amount of weight that is supported on the ground and by the weight of the building when standing on the earth’s surface. The foundation is composed of stones and other metal materials, it is necessary to ensure that these metals are sturdy and resilient to weathering. This worksheet will help you decide if the foundation is up to standard.

Earth and soil must be collected and tested to determine the density of the soil. If the soil is too dense it can cause many problems with water erosion and flooding. If it is too light then it can cause water to leak under the foundations and cause structural damage.

If you take your time and collect your samples at a number of locations and check them at each location for the percentage of soil that is dark or low in nutrients it will help you determine the number of years that are required for a new building to be placed on this type of soil. If it is too old then it can also cause you to have problems such as falling damp walls and loose foundations.

The cement used in the foundation is another factor that can be affected by the type of soil that is used. If the soils used are low in nutrients they will not have much use for the cement. This will affect the ability of the cement to hold up under pressure.

Paving and drainage are also determined by the type of soil in the foundation. When the ground becomes wet, it will cause cracks to form. These cracks will widen and cause the foundation to have problems with the drainage system, the potholes, and will cause the foundation to shift.
