Best Answer

You need different tools these measurements.

For mass you want a scale or balance.

You can only use the same tool for length and volume (a ruler, caliper or similar) if the object you are measuring is a well defined solid with known geometric shape.

Otherwise you will have to perform a measuring experiment for example put the object you want to determine the volume of in a graduated cylinder, pour a known volume of liquid into the cylinder, read the volume and subtract to determine the object's volume.
