What is volume?

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!)
