# What is the relationship between mass and volume of water?

No matter what size sample of water you measure, the relationship between the mass and volume will always be the same. Because D=m/v, the density is the same for any amount of water. Project the animation Liquid Water. Water molecules are always moving.

Similarly one may ask, what is the relationship between mass and volume?

Mass and volume are two units used to measure objects. Mass is the amount of matter an object contains, while volume is how much space it takes up. Example: A bowling ball and a basketball are about the same volume as each other, but the bowling ball has much more mass.

Similarly, are mass and volume directly related? So when you say mass is directly proportional to volume it means density is kept constant. It is applicable in situations where density is constant. For example, if you fill a smaller and a larger bucket with water at room temperature, the larger one will weigh more.

Correspondingly, is the relationship between mass and volume direct or indirect?

Mass is the amount of 'stuff' in an object and volume is how much space that object occupies. As pressure increases, so does density. (A direct relationship). Inversely, as temperature increases, density decreases because of increasing volume.

What does mass and volume have in common?

Mass measures the amount of matter in a substance or an object. Volume measures the amount of space that a substance or an object takes up. The basic SI unit for volume is the cubic meter. Density is an important physical property of matter.
