Mass and volume may often be interchanged with each other, but people should remember that they are different. Mass refers to the amount of matter that the object being measured has while volume refers to the amount of space that the purpose takes up. For example, you may want to find the mass of the cabinet.

This means that you need to know the amount of matter that the cabinet may have. Take note that this is different from weight. Mass can be used to compare the number of matter that two objects may have. For example, will cabinet A have more mass compared to cabinet B? Volume will measure how much space in a room will the item take up.

Some interchangeably use mass and volume probably because they are both used to measure objects. Mass refers to the amount of matter than one object may have while capacity refers to the amount of space than an object takes up. There are different formulas that you can use to help you determine the actual mass or the volume of an item.

For example, mass is equal to volume times density. If you want to solve for volume, you need to use the formula for mass divided by density. The answer will differ depending on the given numbers. Now that you know that they are not the same, it will be easier for you to determine which is which.
