Weight divided by volume is density. Usually it is expressed as mass divided by volume. That is why a unit for density will be something like grams/liter, because mass is on the top and volume on the bottom.

You need to know the local force of gravity and the density of the object.

Divide the weight by the local acceleration due to gravity to convert to mass. Then divide the result by the density to get the volume. If you are in outer space, you have no hope because the local gravity will be 0 and division by 0 is not defined.
