Notes on mass, volume & density

Weight Weight: A measure of the force of gravity on an object. Weight: A measure of the force of gravity on an object.

Weight Weight will change if you move an object from Earth to another planet. Weight will change if you move an object from Earth to another planet.

Mass An unchanging measurement of how much matter an object contains. An unchanging measurement of how much matter an object contains.

Mass Mass will stay the same from planet to planet. Mass will stay the same from planet to planet.

Mass An unchanging measurement of how much matter an object contains. An unchanging measurement of how much matter an object contains. Mass will stay the same from planet to planet. Mass will stay the same from planet to planet. Mass is measured in grams or kilograms. Mass is measured in grams or kilograms.

Volume Volume is a measurement of the amount of space that matter occupies. Volume is a measurement of the amount of space that matter occupies.

Volume Volume is commonly measured in mL for liquid and cubic cm (cm 3 ) for solids. Volume is commonly measured in mL for liquid and cubic cm (cm 3 ) for solids.

Volume is commonly measured in mL for liquid and cubic cm (cm 3 ) for solids. Volume is commonly measured in mL for liquid and cubic cm (cm 3 ) for solids. The formula for measuring volume is Length x Width x Height. The formula for measuring volume is Length x Width x Height.

Volume How can you measure the volume of an object with an irregular shape? How can you measure the volume of an object with an irregular shape?

Volume Put the object in a cylinder containing water and measure the change in the volume of water.

One cubic centimeter (cm 3 ) is the same as One milliLiter (mL). One milliLiter (mL).

Which weighs more, a ton of feathers or a ton of bricks? ________________ Think about it!

Density Density is the measurement of how much mass is contained in a given volume. Density is the measurement of how much mass is contained in a given volume.

Density The formula for measuring density is Density = Mass/Volume, or D=M/V. The formula for measuring density is Density = Mass/Volume, or D=M/V.

Density Density is the measurement of how much mass is contained in a given volume. Density is the measurement of how much mass is contained in a given volume. The formula for measuring density is Density = Mass/Volume, or D=M/V. The formula for measuring density is Density = Mass/Volume, or D=M/V. The / means “per” or “for each,” which in math is the same as “divided by.” The / means “per” or “for each,” which in math is the same as “divided by.”

The / means “per” or “for each,” which in math is the same as “divided by.” The / means “per” or “for each,” which in math is the same as “divided by.” Units of measure for density could be g/cm 3, g/mL, kg/mL, kg/cm 3, etc. Units of measure for density could be g/cm 3, g/mL, kg/mL, kg/cm 3, etc.

The density of water is 1 g/mL, or 1 g/cm 3. is 1 g/mL, or 1 g/cm 3.
