You would need a balance to measure its mass. You would need a ruler to measure the length of its sides. Then you would need to calculate volume. Then divide the mass by the volume to get density.

Scales to measure its mass and a ruler to measure the length of the cube's side.

To answer this we need also the density of the sponge material.

Density = Mass/Volume so you need to measure the mass of the substance and divide by the volume that it occupies.

Grams is a measure of mass and milliliters is a measure of volume. The way they are related is through the equation: density= mass/ volume. Therefore you would need to find the density of the substance in order to convert the units. If you find the density then you would multiply the density and 47 grams to find the volume.

it depends on what you have a tonne of Tonne is a measure of mass. Litrs is a measure of volume. To convert between the two you need the density of the material - which means you have to pick a material and find its density before you can do the conversion.

You need also the mass of the material: volume = mass/density. After you measure the mass of the object, then divide by the density, to find volume.

"Cups" is a measure of volume; "pounds" is a measure of weight. You would need to specify the material, or at least the density of the material, for us to calculate this.

Milligrammes is a measure of weight. Cubic centimetres (cc) is a measure of volume. To be able to find the weight in mg for 2cc of material, you will need to know density of that material.

There is no general conversion, since they measure different things (volume versus mass). You need to know the density of a specific material to do the conversion for that material, and apply the formula: mass = volume x density

Density = Mass / Volume. There is not an instrument that will measure both so you will need to measure them separately and calculate the density.

Grams is a measurement of mass, while teaspoons are a measurement of volume. In order to convert between them, you would need to specify the density of the material, or identify the material so that we can look up or calculate its density.

Density is the ratio mass/volume. For a granular material you need a helium pycnometer.Or - more simple, if it is possible - a graduate cylinder for the measure of the volume by the displacement of water.

To find the density of a material all you need to know is the mass and volume of the substance. if you knw the mas and volume...finding out the density is very simple...all you need to do is mass/volume and you will have the density of that substance!

you need the density of the material

You cannot. A ton (not tone as in the original question) is a measure of mass while a gallon is a measure of volume. The two measure different things and, according to a basic rule of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid without additional information. In this case you need to know the density of the material in question.You cannot. A ton (not tone as in the original question) is a measure of mass while a gallon is a measure of volume.

You need to know the density of the material. Multiply the volume by the density will give you the mass
