Volume, Mass, and Density Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. Mass is a measure of how much matter is in an object. Mass can be expressed in metric units of grams (g) or kilograms (kg). Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. Mass is a measure of how much matter is in an object. Mass can be expressed in metric units of grams (g) or kilograms (kg). You can use a tool called a pan balance to measure the mass of an object. You can use a tool called a pan balance to measure the mass of an object.

Volume – is a measure of the size of a three-dimensional object, or how much space it takes up. Volume – is a measure of the size of a three-dimensional object, or how much space it takes up. A graduated cylinder is a tool for measuring the volume of a liquid. Liquid volume can be expressed in liters (L) and milliliters (mL). Irregular shaped objects is also measured using a graduated cylinder. In measuring this you take the volume of the object and water and subtract the original volume of the water. The difference between the volumes is the volume of the object. A graduated cylinder is a tool for measuring the volume of a liquid. Liquid volume can be expressed in liters (L) and milliliters (mL). Irregular shaped objects is also measured using a graduated cylinder. In measuring this you take the volume of the object and water and subtract the original volume of the water. The difference between the volumes is the volume of the object.

You can find the volume of a cube or block, by multiplying its length by its width by its height. The volume of these objects is expressed in cubic centimeters (cm You can find the volume of a cube or block, by multiplying its length by its width by its height. The volume of these objects is expressed in cubic centimeters (cm 3 ) or cubic meters (m 3 ).

Density is another property of matter that can be measured. The density of an object or substance is its mass divided by its volume. Density can be expressed as grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3). Density tells how heavy or light something is for its size.
