We now know that the amount of matter an object
contains is mass, but what is the measurement of how much space
something occupies? This measurement is called volume.
Volume tells us how much space a specific mass occupies.
Remember the bowling ball and the balloon?
Assuming that each object is to scale, which object
has more volume?
Right! The balloon is larger, so it has more
volume. But remember, its volume has nothing to do with the
fact that it is lighter (has less weight!)
have more volume: a bowling ball on earth or a bowling ball
