I need to design a procedure for this lab.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I measured the mass of a couple of bags containing the same object in random amounts. Without looking at how many objects are in the bag i have to determine the mass of one object.

At first i thought that since each mass measured should be a multiple of the mass of one object, dividing any two of the masses will give a ration of numbers. The numerator and denominator represent integers that will help determine the mass of an individual object.

The teacher said it had to do something with formulas that concern gravity and force. Another group tried to use density and volume formula to solve it. I'm pretty stuck here, can anybody please help me??
