The volume of a solid is measured in cubic units

Measure a volume of liquid that the object will sink in, the put in the object to be measure. then measure the new volume. the difference between the last volume and the beginning volume is the volume of the object.

You place it in water to see the volume of water it displaces. Fill a large, graduated measuring cylinder to about halfway with water (say to 50mL) Put the irregular solid in, and measure the volume it reads (solid + water). (say it reads 80mL) So the volume of the irregular solid will be: volume(solid+water) - volume(water). For example, the volume of the water was 50mL, and when the solid was added, the volume increased to 80mL. The volume of the solid would be 80mL - 50mL. So it would be 30mL.

You can dip the irregular solid in a water or other suitable liquid. This is how, you can measure the volume of the solid. The mass can be measured by weighing scale. Mass/volume = density. It is easy to measure the mass and volume of the liquid. First measure the mass the container. Then add the liquid to it. You will get the mass of the liquid. Then measure the volume of the liquid. Use the above formula to calculate the density of the liquid.

Cubic meters are used to measure the volume of a solid. Since meter is the SI unit and volume refers to width times length times height, the unit is cubic meters.

You can measure it by the volume of liquid that the object displaces

yes you can use a balance to measure the volume of an irregular shaped solid.

If the solid is square or rectangular in shape, you can measure the three dimensions and multiply them to get volume in cubic units, such as cubic centimeters. If the solid is an irregular shape, you will need to use water displacement to measure the volume. To do this you place enough water in a graduated cylinder that will cover the solid. Then record the water volume. Next, carefully place the solid into the cylinder. Measure the new water volume. The volume of the solid is the second water volume minus the original water volume.

Measure the volume of the water you have. Insert irregular solid. Measure the volume of the water you have now, and subtract the initial water volume from the new water volume. The difference in volumes is the volume of your irregular solid.

It's simple, you just have to take a measurable recipient big enough to contain the solid, fill the recipient with a known volume of water and drop the irregular solid into the water. Then you can measure the increase of volume, which will be equivalent to the volume of your solid.
