All we need to do is cut a piece of the aluminum foil in question, measure its length and height (so we can find its area), crumple the foil into a small ball and weigh it on a milli- gram balance. We will then have all the data necessary to determine by indirect means the thickness of the aluminum foil.
Besides, does aluminum foil have volume?
If the mass of a sample of aluminum foil is known, then it is possible to calculate the volume of the foil. In general volume is the product of length times width times height of an object. If we know the length and width of a piece of foil, we can then determine its height, or thickness.
Subsequently, how do you find the thickness and width of aluminum foil?
How do you measure thickness?
The best way to obtain the thickness of a single paper sheet involves using a micrometer, dial caliper, or a paper thickness gauge. There are both analog and digital models, but we recommend you to use a digital model as its easier to read and will give you more accurate measurements.
Heavy Duty (HD): A true heavy duty foil wrap measures in at 0.00087 gauge, commonly rounded up to 0.001 gauge, equivalent to 23.5 microns.
Aluminum foil is a thin sheet that is made of an aluminum alloy, and it’s among the must-have utensils in every kitchen nowadays. There are multiple types of aluminum foil with different purposes of use. Due to the difference in standard thickness of regular aluminum foil and heavy-duty version, they are not the same.
As nouns the difference between density and thickness
is that density is (physics) a measure of the amount of matter contained by a given volume while thickness is (uncountable) the property of being thick (in dimension).
More About Heavy-Duty Aluminum Foil
As the name implies, this type of foil is thicker and sturdier than regular aluminum foil. It’s tough enough to stand up to high heat, heavy food items, and long-term storage in the freezer. Because of the extra thickness, it’s also a better choice for campfire packets.

Now, volume of the piece of aluminium foil = surface area * thickness. This is equivalent to length * width * height. Here, the height is the thickness. The thickness of the piece of foil is 0.00163 cm or 1.63 x 10^-3 cm.
