Most often on Earth, either a pan-balance or a scale is used. As long as you stay on
the same planet and know the acceleration of gravity there, the easiest method is to
measure weight, and then calculate mass from it.
You just have to remember that if you go to another planet, the weights of all the masses
will change, so you'll have to know the acceleration of gravity in the place where you are.
You'd have to be extra careful in space. If your spacecraft is coasting, then nothing in
it has any weight. And during a rocket-engine burn, or if it's falling toward a planet, the
weight of things inside depends on the rate of acceleration. If there's any acceleration
at all, then you could use a pan balance to compare your unknown object against the
marked, standard masses that you carry in a little felt-lined mahogany box. But you
can't use a plain old bathroom scale at all in space, because it's calibrated for gravity
on Earth. So it would read some number if you're accelerating, but the number wouldn't
tell you anything.
The most common tool in a laboratory is the balance.
Yes, a tool is used to measure mass. One way is to use a balance.
BMI (body mass index)
A balance is the best tool for measuring mass.
Mass of an atom = mass of protons + mass of neutrons

Mass percentage calculations determine the percentage of an element based on mass in a compound. This can then be used to determine the percentage in a compound of each individual element.
The formula used to determine density is mass divided by volume
Mass spectrometry may be used to determine elements in traces.
The mass of electrons is very small (around 1820 times smaller) and is negligible when compared to the mass of protons or neutrons. Hence the mass of electrons are not used to determine mass number or atomic mass.
Density can be used to determine the mass and the volume of a given solid.
No proper data can be used to determine a falsehood, and since mass and weight are NOT the same thing there can be no such data.
no we use relative mass

An electronic balance is used to determine mass.
