Mass is equal to density times volume, or m = Dv, since density is equal to mass divided by volume, or D = m/v. Mass is denoted by the symbol "m," and its SI units are kilograms. More » Science Measurements

The mass of an object is the amount of matter it contains while volume is the amount of space it takes up. Mass should not be confused with weight, which is the measure of the gravitational force on an object. More » Science Measurements

Anything that has mass and volume is called matter. There are four classical states of matter: solid, plasma, liquid and gas. Each type of matter has different properties. More » Science Measurements
