Measuring the density of Loose Fill Insulation

Does anyone have pictures of testing the density of loose fill insulation they can share? I need one for a presentation I'm doing.

Thanks in advance

    You don't test density for loose fill only dense pack - you simply use a ruler / have them hung every so many feet. The insulator is also supposed to leave a note on how many bags, the depth & R-Value based off of that.

    Thanks for this info.
