Density = mass/volume, ρ=m/V so V=m/ρ and has units (kilograms)/(kilograms per cubic meter)=cubic meter. If you are dealing with other units say pounds as a unit of weight,' then 1 kg corresponds to 2.21 lb at sea level in the sense that the weight of 1 kg is 2.21 lb at sea level. Similarly 1 lb corresponds to 453.6 g and 1 oz to 28.35 g' (Beiser, A. Physics, 5th ed, Addison Wesley, 1992)
First you have to convert volume to mass. You multiply the volume by the density of the substance you are considering. Then you multiply the mass by the gravity, to get the weight.

## Related Questions Grams is a measure of mass (weight). Milliliter is a measure of volume or capacity. If you do not know the specific weight (density) of your material you cannot convert a volume to a weight. You can not convert mg (weight) to volume (ml). Use the same amount of marshmallows, weight-for-weight. (Not volume-for-volume). 500 milliliters cannot be converted into pounds. Milliliters are related to volume. Pounds are related to weight. Units of volume and weight do not convert. kg is a weight, liters is a volume, they don't convert Converting volume into weight requires density as the conversion factor. Volume x density = weight (as long as the density is given in terms of weight per unit volume). Ummm... That's not possible. Kg stands for kilograms, which are weight. Cubic meters are volume. YOU CANNOT CONVERT WEIGHT INTO VOLUME!!! You don't; pounds is weight and liters is volume.  Convert cubic meters in kilograms? No can do. Cubic meters is a volume, kilos are weight. Unless you know the density you can't get an answer. You cannot. Volume and weight are two different characteristics and, according to basic dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid. If you had the density of the substance, you would be able to convert the volume to mass. But mass is not the same as weight. You would then need information about the strength of gravitational attraction at the location to convert the mass into weight. You are trying to convert a measure of weight to a measure of volume. Like apples to oranges. cc (cubic centimeters) is volume gms (grams) is mass (or weight) They don't convert. You cannot convert one to the other. Grams is a measure of weight, where millilitres is a measure of volume. Without knowing the weight to volume ratio of the item in question, there is no way to convert the weight to a volume. You cannot directly convert weight to volume. In order to do this, you need to divide weight by the density. There is no way to directly convert tons to gallons. Tons is a measurement of weight and gallons is a measurement of volume. You cannot associate weight with volume without knowing the density. If you find this out, then Density is mass/volume pounds are weight. gallons are volume. you see how that doesn't add up? you have to know the weight per volume of what you're measuring in order to convert it. A pint is measuring a volume. A gram is a mass or weight. You cannot convert volume to mass, without knowing the specific weight (density) of the material. To actually perform this operation, the weight of a given volume of syrup needs to be determined first. Once the weight per volume is known, then any volume of syrup can be converted into any weight, and any weight can be converted into any volume. A form of this same operation is performed daily by pilots who need to convert gallons/liters of fuel into pounds/kilos for the purpose of determining a safe weight and balance for their aircraft. you can't convert units of weight to units of volume Does not convert; one is a measure of weight and the other is a measure of volume. You don't. A gram is a measure of weight, a gallon is a measure of volume. Of what? You cannot arbitrarily convert volume to weight.
