Suppose we have a body which has a volume V, and the substance from which it is composed, has a

mass m =

m = 2300*2 = 4600 kg or 4.6 tons.

**density**u p. Then to calculate the mass of a body we need to calculate the product of the density and volume of the body:mass m =

**density**p * volume V. let's Consider an example. Suppose that we are given a concrete block with a volume of 2 cubic meters. From the table of densities of various substances under normal conditions, we find**the density**of concrete (2300 kg/cubic meter). Then the mass of the block concrete will be:m = 2300*2 = 4600 kg or 4.6 tons.
