What measuring tool do I use to find the mass of an object?

Bowshierbabe, the question wasn't about density.

Mass is usually determined with some type of scale, BUT a floor scale is dependant on gravity being known and fairly constant. (Example - your bathroom scale.) A reg. floor scale measures WEIGHT. A balance beam scale uses known masses to compare with your unknown mass, so as long as there is some respectable amount of gravity, you will get the correct MASS. (Example - scale in the doctor's office.) Mass remains the same regardless of the gravity. --- 100 kg on Earth is 100 kg on the Moon. 220 pounds on Earth is only 36.5 pounds (and 520 pounds on Jupiter.)

Hope this helped. Good Luck!!

mass is all the particals in matter that make up an aobject so you could use a scale or you can use the archemedies theroy, and put water in ameasuring cup and then put the object in and see how much the water rises...

he asked the measuring tool dude. Not how to find density. We all know how to find it. Go tell it to him on the other how to find density question she posted like me!

ermm the tool you use hmm I think what we used in school was a balance scale or something to that effect I cant quite remmber soz was a few years back lol
