Object Mass

Using the llGetMass function, different object masses were taken and recorded.

Different primitive types have different densities.

Mass has a minimum value of 0.001 for all prim types. It seems this means that a prim below a certain size (usually at or around 0.1) has an exponentially increasing density.

A cylinder of size <0.01,0.01,0.01> has a density of 1273.239502Lg/m3! (Normal cylinder density is 9.207253Lg/m3.)

Note: Lg stands for Lindogram, the basic unit of mass for SL. It is not the kilogram, as working with physics equations shows.
