## What is the conversion factor between mass and volume?

The density of a substance tells you the mass of exactly one unit of volume of that substance. This essentially means that density can be used as a conversion factor to go from the mass of a sample to the volume it occupies, or vice versa. Now, density relates two quantities, mass and volume.
