Mass is a body of matter of indefinite shape and considerable size. Volume is the 3-dimensional space enclosed by a closed boundary. Density is the degree to which something is filled. The relationship between mass, volume and density is they are all connected, as if an object has one of these characteristics, it has all three.

The mass = its volume. This is true if the mass of water is measured in grams and the volume is measured in cc and the density of water is 1 gram/cc. Depending on temperature, 1 gram/cc is a good approximation. In general, the relationship between water (or anything else) and its volume is mass/volume = density.

Boyles law describes the relationship between volume of a gas, and the pressure of that gas, when the temperature remains constant. Put another way, P1V1 = P2V2.

The mass of a grape is 7.5. The density of a grape is 2.5. The volume of a grape is 3. As you can see, there is a relationship between these three numbers that all mass, densities, and volumes of objects have.

The density is the ratio between mass and volume.
